The protective power of arts in health and mental health has been with us for millennia and today is evidence based. Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis. Making the choice to look after our mental health is our first step to personal growth. Making art is creative and fun. Being part of a supportive and safe group is therapeutic.
Group Art Therapy can be a powerful, playful, liberating way to express difficult emotions and thoughts while feeling safe, respected and supported. For over 10 years Artful Retreats is invested in providing support to individuals who care about their mental health and are open to support it through creativity. Open to all no need to have any artistic skill.
Who said only children can use art to freely express and be playful? "...lest it feel a bit too close to the woo-woo space, consider that the use of art to ease mental and psychological distress has been championed by everyone from Hippocrates to Carl Jung" Five Wellness Escapes - Artful Retreats, Financial Times - Maria Shollenbarger, September 2021
