13621623_10154380882955229_505262067_oWelcome to Art Therapy Monday!  The blog may be new, but I have been creating sessions for about 18 months on Facebook.  The main goal has been to help others find peace through art and recreation every Monday.  Currently, I have 75 unique sessions, and many many more ideas to share with you!

Life can be tough. Art and recreation can help keep us sane and centered by creating and staying active. I admire art/recreation therapists so much, that I am dedicating one hour, one day a week just for this kind of “group therapy”. (Though I tend to do way more than that!) Join my girls and I as we play around with lots of different art mediums, play games, and generally lighten our loads for a while.

Disclaimer: I am not a licensed art/recreational therapist, and am not a substitute for a real doctor if you need one. Please seek professional care.  This is meant to be a supplement only.

Since this is a new beginning, I will start with session 1 here, and attempt to post daily until I am caught up with the Facebook page, which is here: arttherapymonday  Like the page and share it with your friends!

I truly hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have.  Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome.  Remember though, that this is a safe place, and please be kind to one another.
