Art therapy is only for artists…
It has been proven that art can help cancer survivors process the difficult feelings and emotions that arise during a cancer expereince. However, many cancer survivors do not try something art related because they believe they are not an “artist”. In this video, Mike Lang talks with the Art Therapist at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Marie Butler, about using art to help heal and how it is all about the process, not the end product.
