Art therapy / Expressive therapy / Creative therapy is a form of psychotherapy where people are invited to use a variety of art, creative, playful media (drawing, painting, collage, clay, stories, fabrics, figurines, objects etc), to explore both verbally and non-verbally our issues, emotions and thoughts. No previous artistic experiences are necessary to benefit from this modality, just bring your curiosity and get ready to be surprised to see what you can create.
