Art For Wellness Workshops
Wine & Design has collaborated with the American Art Therapy Association to bring you our Art for Wellness On-Demand Workshop Series with registered and board certified art therapist, Lauren Davies. Art Therapy is a form of creative arts therapy that focuses on the use of the creative process to improve a person’s well-being through both their mental and emotional health. Art can be life enhancing and focuses on positivity to discover your personal strengths. Art Therapy is used to improve cognitive and sensorimotor functions, foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, promote insight, enhance social skills, reduce and resolve conflicts and distress, and advance societal and ecological change. This wellness series offers a window into what it is like to use creative expression.
