Nurturing Arts Therapy by Alyssa Millard

With art, often the focus is on the end product and whether or not it is 'good enough' by society's standards. Art Therap y is different. With Art Therapy it is more about what you learn in the course of creating and imaging your internal thoughts, struggles, hopes and dreams! I believe that the visual language of art has the ability to dialogue with the viewer in a much more profound way than through the written or spoken word alone. A visual image can sometimes speak volumes much more clearly than the spoken word, directly accessing one’s psyche and instinctual understanding of something. In other words, art can provide that avenue of expression for emotions or ideas that are too ‘big’ for words.
