Expressive arts therapy is the practice of using imagery, storytelling, dance, music, drama, poetry, movement, dreamwork, and visual arts together, in an integrated way, to foster human growth, development, and healing. It is about reclaiming our innate capacity as human beings for creative expression of our individual and collective human experience in artistic form.
Expressive therapy can soothe one’s soul and help you manage stress. If you have a lot of things on your plate, you can manage them much easier through the use of art therapy. Contrary to traditional art expression, the process of creation is emphasized rather than the final product. By tapping into one’s natural capacity for creative expression and creative community, we can nurture healing, growth, clarity, and vision within.
