Art therapy can lead to a deepened understanding of a person’s own strengths and fears, re-establishing the inner control that is the ground of human freedom and thriving. Expressive therapy methods include drawing, painting, movement, music, photography, simple sculpture and writing; unlike most art classes, these therapies are open-ended in length, and open in the use of any medium or media.
