Art Therapy Lesson Plan Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Art Therapy Lesson Plan Worksheet?
Art Therapy uses the individual’s creative expression in the form of art as a non-threatening means of communication with their inner self. It can be used as a tool for analysing one’s innermost conflicts and as a therapeutic exercise to relieve disturbing emotions and feelings. Using Art therapy in schools is an effective way to help students deal with and manage the social, emotional and behavioural issues that are common to their age and circumstances.
