Art therapy is not about making something beautiful, although sometimes it may end up aesthetically pleasing. Art therapy is about the process of the art making. It's the transformation of internal ideas, processes, emotions into something external and tangible. It's the hard work of exorcising the confusing, non-linear elements of our human existence to learn and understand through sometimes primal processes.
Expression is not just something for SOME people. It's a necessity for ALL humans.
