ART AS THERAPY (Work of patients from Clinical Department for Children and Adolescents)
Our artistic talent and skills of painting are not important.
We allow our emotions to guide us and thus we enter into a new world of possibilities for the resolution of issues. So, we free internal hidden world using available materials that were looking like unusable, and our hands and fantasy tern them alive. Through the newly created items we see better relations in group and between individuals; we recognize the most delicate feelings and rid ourselves of bad thoughts.
We want you to know that we are always full of new ideas that overlap and change the path to full realization, and thus make us more dedicated in therapy.
