Art is HEALING!

Really, art really does heals you! You can see now that in many psychologist sessions they provide you with art therapy. You can now see so many art therapy books like painting and coloring in the book stores. I myself is an artist, so it really makes me happy to paint and express however I feel. Sometimes you just want to BLAH! everything out but don't really know in fear of misunderstanding, judgement, etc. I think art and writing is one of the best medicine ever! Haha. Really, if you're stressed about something, just sketch or paint WHATEVER you want. It helps! I think art is a very great way to communicate with others without really uttering any words.

Agreed. I have done quite a bit of healing art myself. Even attended a healing arts class.

Art is the most free and open form, but even handicrafts, cooking or building a tree house can all be good ways to express creativity. Being creative is not only therapeutic, it is essential to being a healthy human being!

What a great topic! Perhaps surprisingly the answer is yes. The arts are healing. They help people heal all kinds of pain. It gives us a place to put our stress, anxiety and physical ailments. There is an entire field of wellness devoted to this called art therapy. The patient need not have advanced artistic skill or experience either. The Arts themselves and creation of art are both currently being used as treatment in many areas.

I am going to another arts for healing class here soon. The focus will be on animal totems.

Last one I went to was the 11 dot system. Right before class I learned that a dear friend of mine lost his battle with cancer. When I got into the room, there were all kinds of paintings all over the place done by people with cancer. I ended up doing my drawing that day expressing the emotions I had at the time with his passing.

I have a friend who is an art therapist. There are not many around, but she does a lot of good for a lot of people.

Art is a very important way of self expression. It certainly is an amazing healer.

I'm a writer and I also draw and paint. It helps me whenever I'm overwhelmed or sad or angry. I bring art into my magical practices as well. Actually when I committed to witchcraft I found that everything became art. My altar, my shrines, my rituals, spells, etc..

Art is a doorway to many things. The best thing is that art is just... everywhere :)
