January 16 , 2008 Art and Health
The connections between art and health are at once obvious and ignored. Music, architecture, landscapes, dance, painting, poetry all figure significantly in our mental and physical well being.
Art therapy is a form of expressive therapy that uses art materials, such as paints, chalk and markers. Art therapy combines traditional psychotherapeutic theories and techniques with an understanding of the psychological aspects of the creative process, especially the affective properties of the different art materials. (wikipedia)
Public art can enhance or detract from our environment, changing our perceptions and how we interact with others.
Join our dialogue on Wednesday, January 16 at 10:00 AM as we art and health.
