Creating art is a wonderful experience that instantly provides us with many therapeutic benefits.

By engaging in this enjoyable form of self expression, we instantly feel a sense of calm.  Leaving the stresses and strains of daily life behind us, we enter a place of serenity, that is both relaxing and safe.

Creating art provides an environment in which we can face our fears and control our anxieties.

Deep rooted issues can emerge through the art we create.  Simply identifying these issues dramatically reduces any negative impact they may be having on our lives.

There are also therapeutic properties associated with using art materials, for example paints, colouring pencils, crayons, charcoal, clay, fabrics etc.  Using various art materials provides sensory stimulation.

This self paced online Therapeutic Art course, Therapeutic Art for everyone, contains many activities that anyone can do.

Creativity exists in all of us and Therapeutic Art is a great way of tapping into this unlimited potential that we all have.
