Who can benefit from art therapy? The best thing about art therapy is that it doesn’t ask for you to have the mad skills of Leonardo da Vinci or Picasso to be admitted and reap its benefits. Also, it doesn’t have age limits. So it’s basically meant for me, you, him, her - everyone! 

Famous quotes:

"One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain." - Bob Marley

"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." - Victor Hugo

"The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls." - Pablo Picasso

"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for." - Georgia O'Keeffe

"Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body."- Martha Graham

"To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking." - Agnes de Mille

"To gain your own voice, you have to forget about having it heard." - Allen Ginsberg, WD

"If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad." - Lord Byron

Helpful

I am going to help with an Art Therapy group. This book has given me knowledge of my limitations, which is important to know. I am an artist who has been practicing for years and am knowledgeable in the basics of several media. I feel more comfortable after listening to this. My worry consists of hurting someone by overstepping my bounds. I will look further into this but am happy to have heard this book.

A simple overview of art therapy

This is a good little read if you'd like a broad understanding of art therapy. There is a couple exercises towards the end, but overall there are no 'how to's' in this book. It's mostly about explaining what art therapy does for people.
