Art therapy benefits individuals who have survived trauma resulting from war, abuse or natural disaster. People with adverse physical health conditions are greatly helps by art therapy. It also aids people in resolving their internal conflicts, improving their interpersonal lives and dealing with their problematic behaviours. In my project, I am looking to the works of some artists that I know, who I have met or spoken to. These works motivate me to think: Do artists generally use art as a therapy to help themselves first?
