Art has always been Aradhna’s favorite pastime since childhood, but over the years, she has tried to derive something more meaningful out of it. She believes art can serve as a means of self-exploration, self-discovery, and self-expression in the most authentic way possible.
The use of art for projecting your inner self has emerged as a new-age coping mechanism called art therapy. This process allows you to pour out your heart out without the use of words. People often find it hard to process or verbalize overwhelming emotions, crises or trauma, and art therapy offers them a way to narrate their personal stories through drawings, paintings, collages, and other such creative mediums.
Art therapy can be a powerful tool to expand your self-understanding and affect a personal transformation later on. The art you create can reveal a lot of things that you were previously unaware of, by bringing out the latent thoughts and feelings that lie in your subconscious. Thus, this process of self-discovery can change the way you view yourself and the world around you.
The insights and clarity provided by art therapy can help you identify what exactly is holding you back so that you can work towards overcoming it. This kind of self-discovery can empower you to lead happier, well-adjusted lives.
