Art Therapy – It’s about helping put the pieces back together. This gentleman is doing some individual art therapy work after working with a group to create a beautiful public mural. His treatment was focused on healing some past traumas and awakening a new sense of safety and discovery. Through the destruction and creation process of the mosaic mural, he found healing within the art. The group dynamic is an additional support structure as well to help people along their path to healing. Many people don’t know they are artists. But really, we all are artists in some form or another. It is about helping people find their inner artist and express themselves in order to work through an area in their lives where they may be stuck. It’s about letting go of what’s in our heads and letting it come out in our art. Whether it’s with canvas and paint, clay, mosaic, or photography, it’s about finding that pure form of artistic expression to go deeper into one’s own inner knowing and emerge on the other side whole. In this way, art therapy is a holistic health approach to support a positive, healthy lifestyle.
