Collage with Lee Lucey
Art therapy is based on the belief that self-expression and the human creative process have the ability to enhance healing. The therapy targets both hemispheres of the brain: the right hemisphere, which is responsible for spatial and visual information, such as recalling images and identifying differences between colours, and the left hemisphere, which is responsible for analyzing information, performing organizational tasks, and verbal communication. When the brain functions correctly, the two hemispheres integrate and work together. Art therapy encourages proper brain integration through various activities that may include colouring, sewing or knitting, creating murals, crafting “heart boxes” out of a shoebox, designing cards or postcards, making puppets, painting, sketching, drawing, sculpture, collage, and doodling. ref.
