Flying triangles for today. Ready to print and colour. Great for the mental health. Well, who knows if flying triangles in particular are great for your mental health, or anyone else’s.
Art therapy is surprisingly effective for a range of things, such as depression, anxiety, stress (remember colouring helped with my healing from post-traumatic stress), addictions, and as a rehab exercise for physical or intellectual disabilities, brain injury and eating disorders. While I was looking around, I found this cool badge at the Art Therapy blog. There’s lots of info there on art therapy, if you are interested in that sort of thing.
The child art therapy posts touched my heart.
There’s tonnes of info on how art therapy can help people live mentally healthier lives, under the topic “Mental Health & Art Therapy.”
Years ago, I heard about art therapy and thought of studying it, except it wasn’t available here. There is a Masters degree for it now, which sits on top of a Master of Fine Art degree of some sort. I think I will settle for making colouring pictures for people to colour in! Blogging is therapeutic too, what do you reckon?
