Art therapy, as a form of healing, utilises art mediums for the use of art and the action and process of doing art for relaxation, treatment and relieve. In the process of art therapy, individuals may gain a better understanding of themselves and unpack emotions, be able to interpret their psychological issues, deepen the understanding of human nature, and assist in evoking patients’ individual emotions. Art therapy helps to uncover psycological issues and provide effective treatment and relief for patients and individuals facing such problems.

As shared by the renowned Swiss psychologist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung (1875-1961), artistic creations serve as a manifestation of the human subconscious. Due to art’s unique expressive nature, the creative process allows the patient to express their feelings and potential suppressed emotions. Art therapy hence encourages patients to focus on their inner experiences and perceptions rather than external references or pictures.

Art therapy is the perfect combination of art and psychology. It utilises various visual art materials and mediums such as painting, handicrafts, clay, sculpture and collage.

Art therapy facilitates self-expression and self-exploration, helping to reduce negative thoughts, relieve stress and enhance self-confidence. Throughout this process, art therapy promotes and improves individuals’ physical, psychological and emotional well-being.

Why use art for therapy? 

Early civilisation recorded their lives using drawings, and only later developed spoken language. When we narrate something, the visual scenario first appears in our minds before being expressed in words. Similarly, when we listen to someone describing something, the scenario appears is first processed in our head before we respond.

The process of art creation involves both the right and left brain, and it is the expression of both our conscious and subconscious thoughts. Art can bring forth subconscious information that may have been overlooked, allowing for heightened self-awareness and even resolving some internal conflicts, facilitating self-discovery.

Who qualifies for art therapy treatment?

As long as the patient is open to embracing art as a form of therapy, they can join the session. Art therapy can help certain groups of individuals such as:

  • Individuals with depression
  • Individuals with Psychological Trauma

  • Children with special needs

  • Elderly with dementia

  • Family-related trauma

  • Individuals who struggle with socialising

  • Individuals who struggle with regulating their emotions/ negative self-talk

Art therapy and art education share some similarities as both use a large range of art mediums, however, art therapy’s aim is not the mastery of art techniques, but rather to use of abstract images to portray one’s feelings. As art therapy does not focus on creating a perfect, polished final work, it is not subjected to art critique by the art instructors.
