Do you remember the feeling of igniting your imagination as you sat down with paper and crayons as a child? There is something inherently relaxing about putting pen or paint to paper.
Most people grow up and give up artistic hobbies as they believe that their talents are not worthy, but they forget about the benefits that art can provide!
Is Art Therapy A Real Thing?
Art therapy is a form of therapy which is used by millions of people worldwide. Art is a way for people to disconnect from their problems and express themselves through colours and shapes.
Professional art therapy is facilitated by expert therapists, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy the benefits of art therapy from the comfort of your own home.
