The 'SECRET SAUCE'
What sets CREATE YOUR SELF Kits apart....or as I like to call it - the 'secret sauce' - is that CYS Kits are always designed by an Art Therapist who brings a deeper understanding of the art making experience, the significance of each supply chosen & the importance of the directive.
We pride ourselves on our thoughtful packaging for easy storage/clean up & mess-free, on the go supplies.
Even though CYS KITs always focusonthe art-making experience itself, & not the actual art - the ART ultimately becomes very significant BECAUSE of the meaningful process ~ pretty cool...huh?
It is said that 'Art is the desire of man to communicate' - If that's true, Art Therapy is the most powerful tool to help facilitate that communication. So, what's an Art Therapist??
Trained in visual arts, counseling & psychotherapy, Art Therapists utilizes the creative process to help individuals of all ages express themselves non verbally through the creation of Art.
Art Therapists combine traditional therapeutic techniques with an understanding of the psychological aspects of the creative process & the affective properties of different art materials to implement Art Therapy directives.
* CYS Kits offers an opportunity to explore art experiences in a more meaningful way. They are not meant to be a substitute for therapy. If you feel you would benefit from Art Therapy I encourage you to work with an Art Therapist in your area to continue your work. Click here to begin your search!
