About us

What is art therapy?

Art therapy uses art as a guiding language to verbalize what might not easily be put into words. In most sessions, the therapist provides the client with art materials and a prompt to respond to. After the client is done making the art, the therapist discusses it with them. Current practices have many practical limitations, such as available art mediums and decoration and arrangement of the physical space.
