Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. The creative process involved in expressing oneself artistically can help people to resolve issues as well as develop and manage their behaviours and feelings, reduce stress, and improve self-esteem.
We pride ourselves in being a precursor in combining art therapy tools to mental health practices and believe that this approach is unique and provides another angle as to how to address psychosocial issues within the youth.
As an organisation experienced in carrying out art activities, we feel confident to base our program on creative activities. Creativity stimulates our brain, gives us confidence, improves our motoric skills, and ensures that we can identify new opportunities and solutions. During all sessions of our program and homework assignments, we will be translating questions like:
“Who am I?”
“What is important to me and my community?”
“How can I make a small change?” through drawing, spoken word, poetry, movement, journaling, photography etc.”
