Art therapy transcends the need for words. Thoughts, emotions and ideas can be expressed in a visual manner. One image can capture what words may not be able to express adequately. One image can help refine a thought or an idea that proved elusive until it was drawn. Art therapy offers a visual voice to people within our community who have a right to be heard and understood.
This show highlights four organizations within Halton that have integrated art therapy into the lives of their members: The Alzheimer’s Society, Halton Down Syndrome Association, Shifra Homes and the Darling Home for Kids.
