The art part of art therapy involves using simple media and simple assignments to evoke personally meaningful creations. The therapy part involves an exploratory process, one in which a person hopefully taps into their own inner wisdom. Uncovering, understanding and expressing feelings and ideas helps people to be more aware of and in charge of their own lives.
