Art therapy, i.e. treatment through broadly understood art (music, art, movement, literature). It is recommended for both children and adults, healthy people and people
disturbances. It affects our health, positive attitude or reaches us to our interior. By completing the course for an art therapist alone I experienced a kind of catharsis.
I discovered new layers within myself emotions, needs and I have found peace in myself. I was surprised by the effect. Artistic expression gave me a sense of liberation, I could relieve internal tensions, or just relax. At some point, when I started working intensively and with commitment in class,
any emotional blockages or tensions are gone. The intermediate goal art therapy is also the expression of those feelings that we suppress within ourselves. There is nothing more beautiful than expression through art; painting, singing, playing on instruments, carving, movement, creative thinking etc. The purpose of art therapy there is also the stimulation and development of creative imagination, socialization, sensitization to emotions, reflections on the past, present and future, reaching your dreams, talents and finally creating self. Art therapy is nothing more than making a change in yourself too with the help of art. You don't need to have artistic abilities to use
the benefits offered by art therapy. There is also a significant effect only the creative process that takes place in us during the work performed exercise. Art therapy also helps shy people who feel that they cannot use their full potential.
