Art in Therapy
By Stacie Later
Have you struggled to put your feelings into words? Perhaps, you’ve said something like, “I don’t know how to say it” or perhaps it’s been difficult to express these emotions. This is where creative expressive therapy, or simply put, art therapy, can help.
It’s not uncommon for us to meet a creative challenge with “I’m not artistic” or a hint of sarcasm, yes, that’s to you ‘stick figure only’ folks. The truth is, in art there is no right or wrong. Similar to our emotions, there is no right or wrong emotion.
Emotion can be used for destruction or construction. What we decide to do with our emotions is where we place our power. Art therapy allows us to tap into our natural strengths to harness the power we hold within us for growth and healing.
“Art is not always about pretty things. It's about who we are, what happened to us, and how our lives are affected.” - Elizabeth Broun
