ART WASHES AWAY FROM THE SOUL THE DUST OF EVERYDAY LIFE.
– Pablo Picasso
Art therapy has existed since the mid-20th century and has recently began to gain massive popularity.An increasing number of people are taking part in therapeutic crafts because they are relaxing and altogether fun! One form of therapeutic art that has especially been growing is adult coloring books. There are even “parties” now where you can just chat and color with your friends. All that is needed is a few of your favorite colored markers and some pre-printed designs to fill in. It’s just a fun, almost mindless, activity used to unwind and relax.
Most therapeutic art projects are simple and don’t require intensive focus, so you can just let your mind loose and release your creativity. It isn’t about the final product! More the allowing of your brain to relax and be creative.
