Art therapy event hosted at the Dahl Arts Center


The Dahl Arts Center is hosting an event for Lutheran Social Services called Healing Through Art.

This Healing Through Art event will be held tomorrow evening from 5:30–7:30 p.m., featuring a collection of art from youth art therapy clients.

Lutheran social services says that art therapy is a form of healing within a professional relationship by people who experience illness, trauma or challenges in living, and by people who seek personal development.

The program was started to give children a different outlet to express their emotions.

Lutheran Social Services director, Sara Hornick said, "A lot of people can't describe their feelings as well, and so this is a different chance for them to talk about their feelings in a different way. You know they can start drawing something or coloring, and just think about how it opens up a kid's imagination."

The event is open to the public and will include a silent auction from local artist who support art therapy. All proceeds will benefit Lutheran social services
