Expressive Art Therapy Sessions Expressive art therapy uses the various art modalities such as drawing, painting, writing, sculpting, music, sound, play, and movement in a supportive environment to promote development, growth and healing. It is a process of self discovery through any art form. In expressive art therapy the emphasis is on the process of creation rather than the "final" product.
Through the arts an individual can communicate ideas and feelings that may be hard to put into words. Expressive art therapy can help with emotional conflicts, self awareness, developing social skills, managing behavior, reducing anxiety, and increasing self-esteem.
Expressive art therapy can help empower children, teens, adults and elderly. A session may use many of the different art modalities together to encourage free self expression. Through the process of creating you are offered a way to know yourself from a new perspective.
