The Acts of An Apostle

Student Artist: age 14

Art Therapy

The American Art Therapy Association describes art therapy as "a mental health profession that uses the creative process of art making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages.

During transition into exercise class, a student that was sitting next to me quickly sketched the above drawing. Art therapy for her is so comforting and expressive, that it speaks volumes that words cannot. Art therapy is a fun way I like to introduce new words or build vocabulary words through a comic strip format.
