Prior to completing my Master's Degree in Art Therapy I worked in community arts centers, museums, and classrooms facilitating arts programming in numerous settings and for people of all ages.
Creating a space for clients to freely explore and take time completely for themselves in art making provides a break from attending to the needs of others.
Creative expression and making art can facilitate learning new creative problem solving skills and developing awareness of individual patterns and self-talk.
By working with art materials, clients can develop new skills and a sense of accomplishment and improved self-esteem
Making art and experiencing flow are known to be powerful antidotes to anxiety, and using art materials and creative process in specific ways can interrupt anxious thoughts.
