Art as therapy
To all of you creatives out there....your time is NOW
There was an Experience Life Study that was done that I found not at all surprising. To measure cortisol levels (an indicator of stress), researchers collected saliva samples from participants before and after their creative work. The results, published in Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, titled “Reduction of Cortisol Levels and Participants’ Responses Following Art Making,” found that 45 minutes of creative activity significantly lessens stress in the body, regardless of artistic experience or talent.
REGARDLESS OF ARTISTIC EXPERIENCE OR TALENT!!!!! Did you hear that? So those of you who are convincing yourselves that you don't have talent, come and participate in THE ART PROCESS activities and experience this for yourself. ART IS THERAPY!
