We want to help children and adults to feel happier and create a better world, different from the hysterical and performance oriented society that is pushing everybody to the limits and leave no space anymore for phantasy and self-reflection...

Through art projects—including visual arts, dance, writing, and music—along with spiritual practices and guided imagery, Healing With the Arts gives you the tools to heal what you need to heal in your life: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

Art healing is a personal journey and needs no therapist and no analysis.
In creating artwork, the healing process has already begun.

Art healing, also known as the healing arts, is a term that is applied to the use of art in emotional and physical healing.

​Art therapist and author Cathy Malchiodi states in her book The Art Therapy Sourcebook, that art therapy is “…based on the idea that the creative process of art making is healing and life enhancing, and that it is a potent form of communication. It utilizes the creative process… to promote growth, self-expression, emotional reparation, conflict resolution and transformation.”

According to Malchiodi, art healing is beneficial in several ways:

Visually deals with traumatic emotions can feel safer then dealing with them in words

Lets us express things we cannot express in words

Is helpful in releasing emotions

Is a powerful therapeutic process that has meaning and comes directly from our own feelings and imagination

Allows us to know ourselves better

Is available to everyone

Enhances our lives and reduces stress

While artists in general tend to focus on the aesthetics of artwork, art therapy and art as a healing tool focus on feelings and thoughts. Art healing works in any medium; drawing, water colors, paints, collage, and others. In Art Therapy, a therapist usually instructs the patient in making a piece of artwork that expresses their feelings, and then encourages them to discuss what the artwork means. Art therapy methods have been shown to help cancer patients, people with arthritis and Alzheimer’s, the mentally ill, and patients suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The act of creating art enhances self-esteem, gives a sense of control, and relieves stress and tension by taking the mind off of problems. Mostly importantly, it is an outlet for emotions.

Art healing is, in essence, self-help art therapy. Anyone can do art healing, and most people do art healing in their own homes, using whatever methods they prefer and creating any type of artwork. Unlike Art Therapy, where the goal is to create art, and then analyze or talk about it with a therapist, art healing is a personal journey and needs no therapist and no analysis. In creating artwork, the healing process has already begun.
