Art Ability

Art therapy can assist with an individual’s psychological, emotional, educational,

social and physical development.

The overall aim of art therapy is to effect change and growth on a personal level through the use of art materials in a safe and facilitating environment.

It doesn’t require previous experience or skill in art as the art therapist is

not primarily concerned with making an aesthetic or  diagnostic assessment of the art work. Further because art therapy is not dependent on spoken language it can be helpful to anyone who finds it difficult to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. Art therapy can help improve behaviour, raise achievement.


It supports people who are:


·        Experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties

·        With social and communication difficulties

·        With learning difficulties or physical disabilities

·        With Autistic Spectrum Disorders

·        Struggling with particular life events such as bereavement,

·        changes in family structure and illness
