Natural Creativity for Growth & Healing
Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t find the right words to express your emotions? We can help!
Art is a natural tool for communication. Art allows us to speak without words and explore our thoughts and feelings in a creative form.
Children are naturally creative, and it is easier for them to draw a picture or create a sculpture rather than answer questions directly in traditional “talk” therapy. They may be reluctant or have difficulty verbalizing their thoughts and feelings. Creating artwork is an enjoyable and non-threatening way of allowing children to work through various issues. Talking to children about their artwork opens the door to a discussion in a less intimidating manner. This is how the success of art therapy can help us get to the heart of the problem
