The art process as a healing method – Program ARTON
The therapies with art include more levels than just the level of cognitive skills. They contain a wide range of exercises with repeated experiences of achievements. They are psycho-physical, specific experiences that allow emotional and cognitive reasoning. They are sensory-aesthetic experiences that touch and nourish the soul. All senses are involved in art therapy session. With repeated experience of dealing in the art process, the child achieves a sense of security, competence, satisfaction. In a session there is also an experimental field of discovery which motivates the curiosity of children. The findings in this way - in the safe and comfortable environment of the art session - are ones of the main sensorimotor and cognitive experiences for learning.
