Gateway hosts art therapy each week for clients to come and participate in the arts, relax, and enjoy good company.
When asked what he enjoys about art therapy, John said, “It’s relaxing, and the projects often help you learn more about yourself. It also brings out the creativity you might not have known you had. It’s fun interacting with people, and it’s inspiring to see others’ artwork.”
This week’s project was to create an abstract hand reaching for your goals and dreams. Some of John’s dreams include visiting family, traveling to see the world’s wonders, and playing music again.
