Soon a New Art Therapy Studio

We are excited to announce that we are building a new Art Therapy Studio for adults and children at Open Door Mission.

Art Therapy helps children, adolescents and adults explore their emotions, improve self-esteem, manage addictions, relieve stress, improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, and cope with a physical illness or disability. Techniques used in art therapy can include drawing, painting, coloring, sculpting, or collage. As clients create art, they may analyze what they have made and how it makes them feel. Through exploring their art, people can look for themes and conflicts that may be affecting their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.

Some of the items needed include:

  • Easels for floor and table
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Watercolor Paint
  • Bristel Paint Brushes
