The Power of Art

cave-handOver 25,000 years ago, early humans expressed themselves through imagery when they created cave paintings of hand prints and animals. As infants, we are not born with the ability to communicate through spoken language. Instead, we all use imagery as part of our first connection with the world, along with smell, taste, touch and hearing.

Expressing through art opens a doorway to the subconscious. We are actually tapping into a collective consciousness of archetypes and symbols that have existed for many millennium.

Art-making and art therapy are powerful, yet gentle forms of self-expression and healing and it’s fun!

Creative expression has been shown to calm the body, reduce blood pressure and stimulate chemicals in the brain that decrease depression, improving our outlook and mood. It is now widely acknowledged that art expression is a good way to visually communicate thoughts and feelings when it is difficult or too painful to put into words.

Creative art exploration takes place in the Wisdom Keepers’ Studio through using Creative Visual Journals, process painting, and other forms of art enrichment for all skill levels. You do not need any experience to take part in using art in this form.
