I love this image. To me, it clearly depicts what art therapy is.
It's the bridge.
Art therapy is the action that connects the left and the right hemispheres of our brain. It allows us to move from the left side of busy doing, organizing and compartmentalizing to the creativity and freedom of right side. It also helps us to take the freedom and imagination of the right side, bring it back to the left, and turn an idea into a tangible thing.
Art therapy is a tool that helps us to use our whole brain. It's a great way to get "unstuck" from one side and move to the other side. In my opinion, to move freely, back and forth between the right and left hemisphere, is to live fully. Thought into action.
But, you don't have to take my word for it.
Experience this for yourself.
