It was in the nineteenth century, in 1859, when Florence Nightingale wrote: 

“Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by colour, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect. Variety of form and brilliancy of colour in the objects presented to patients are actual means of recovery”. 

Art is one of the oldest forms of communication and self-expression. Even in the earliest days of our world, humans created works of art.

Art has always been used to help tell a story.

Today, proven research in neurosciences shows us  that creative expressions such as art are linked to our subconscious minds. For example, even if we aren’t consciously aware of certain feelings and emotions, they will often show themselves in our artistic endeavors. The reasoning behind this is that many people often find it easier to express themselves through more artistic means rather than through verbal communication.  Some times just words are not enough to heal or even process. 

Trauma, feelings and memories get stored in the body and at the part of the brain where there are no words.

Any trauma that occurred pre-verbally would also get stored as a sensory experience with little or no words. 

Growing evidence shows that bringing the arts into the work & healthcare environment promotes a healing atmosphere supporting people's physical, mental and emotional recovery. It improves quality of work and staff morale. It reduces stress and offers harmony as well as allures creativity.

 Art promotes social interactions, elicits emotional responses, facilitates personal connection-making, generally enhances the workplace environment and fosters learning.
