Art Therapy – Creative and Artistic Expression

Discover some new passions through art therapy, or re-kindle some old ones

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.  Georgia O’Keffee

During your treatment at Serenity Vista, you will have abundant opportunity to find healthy ways to express your emotions. Our Art Therapy projects are fun, and they are a powerful way to tap into unconscious feelings and thoughts. Recovery is very hard work. Creative therapy is an outlet to reach harder-to-find places from a new approach.

Whether painting on canvas or painting a rock, creating your own personal Vision Board, making mandalas or dream catchers, or just experimenting with different mediums, your spirit has a creative way to shine. It is never about the ‘finished product’, but more about the process of discovery. Whether you believe you are ‘artistic’ or not, you will experience creative expression in ways to bring you personal insight, joy and delight. And just maybe you’ll discover or rediscover a hidden talent.
