Art as a Mental Health Tool: Women in the Arts Network

Presented by Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council at Online/Virtual Space

May 12 2021
Art as a Mental Health Tool: Women in the Arts Network

Can art be therapy? Is creating something inherently therapeutic? What happens to us psychologically during the art making process? How can we use art to heal the trauma and wounds of an especially difficult year?

Dr. Dafna Rehavia, artist and art therapist, and Alycia Washington, artist and social worker, will answer these questions during our next Women in the Arts Network virtual meet-up. Dafna and Alycia will discuss their journeys both as artists and as mental health professionals, and how these two roles overlap.

During this meetup, you’ll learn:

The difference between the clinical use of art in therapy and the less formal facilitation of art as therapy for groups and individuals.
