Art therapy event held at Positive Avenues drop-in center
Eau Claire (WQOW) - Today art was used as a form of therapy at a local drop-in center for people experiencing homelessness or mental illness.
Positive Avenues and University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire students teamed up to hold an art therapy session for its visitors. About thirty people participated. Organizers say the art therapy is designed to help people express themselves.
"Today they are making dream catchers. So they are writing down a dream or a goal that they have, either for the near future or for what they want to see later on in life," Erin Hanson, an intern with Positive Avenues, said.
UWEC students from a small group communication class organized the event. Hanson says they chose art therapy because it can be done at any age.
