Art Therapy Yorkshire in Scarborough Hospital
The Arts in York Hospital are delighted to display this collection of artworks by individuals engaging with Art Therapy Yorkshire sessions.
The artworks in this exhibition have been created by individuals engaging with the programs or services of Art Therapy Yorkshire, or those who are currently a member of one of their art therapy groups.
Art Therapy Yorkshire is a registered charity aiming to provide art psychotherapy for all age groups both from their studio base in Scarborough and through mobile services across Yorkshire.
Art psychotherapy is a psychological therapy which uses all types of art materials to help express thoughts and feelings. Clients do not need to have any previous art experience or talent as an artist; the therapy is about communicating thoughts and emotions through different images and objects, with little focus on the final outcome.
This long-term exhibition can be found on Scarborough Hospital’s south link corridor.
