Kids in Art Class

Creativity has been essential in therapy since its inception. Arts and crafts have been used to promote physical health and well-being, independence, and freedom, as well as problem-solving.  The multi-sensory engagements, repetitive actions, and ultimate satisfaction of making something are related to the release of neurotransmitters that promote joy and well-being while also reducing stress hormones.

 

Research shows that crafting is much more than just an outlet for personal expression or to just pass the time. Crafting can help reduce anxiety, improve moods, and increase happiness.  Arts and crafts have shown that expression through art can help people of all ages with depression, anxiety, and stress. It has also been linked to improving memory, reasoning, and resilience in adults.  Arts and crafts can also allow children to be creative, which is an important life skill. It builds confidence and academic success.
