Art for Stress Relief
Not Just for Artists
Art for stress relief is not a new thing. People (other than artists) have been doing it for ages. And naturally, it’s been a go-to for artists. Every time I work on a commission, it might also serve as a stress reliever. In many ways, art for stress relief and art therapy are similar. I would say the main difference is that under the term art therapy, one would focus their art specifically on healing some type of trauma under the watchful eye of a licensed art therapist.
