WHAT IS ART THERAPY?
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication (BAAT). Art making helps reduce stress and anxiety, activates dopamine reward pathways, promotes reflection and self awareness and redirects negative thoughts.
In art therapy, it is the process rather than the product that heals, transforms, and creates avenues for insight and development.

"When words are not enough, we turn to images and symbols to tell our stories. And in telling our stories through art, we find pathways to wellness, recovery and transformation"
