The Benefits of Art Therapy

As a professional, independent art instructor for 15 years in the Lehigh Valley area, I have seen first hand the benefits of the pursuit of painting and other art activities. I have worked with many older adults who discover relaxation and respite from their busy lives through the creation of a work of art that they can cherish and/or share with their loved ones. Some even go on to reap financial reward by selling their artwork.
