Art as a Form of Therapy: How Creating Art Can Improve Mental Health
Art therapy is a form of therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve mental health. Through the act of creating art, individuals can explore emotions, thoughts, and feelings that may be difficult to express verbally. Art therapy can help individuals process and express emotions such as anxiety, depression, or trauma, develop self-awareness and mindfulness, and learn coping skills and resilience. Additionally, art therapy can be used as a complement to traditional mental health treatment.
