Today we had the wonderful opportunity to send another life-changing art kit to Josie Ray, a young child with autism. Oftentimes, people with autism have trouble with verbal communication and creating art is a wonderful way for autistic people to express themselves and engage with their environment. The art creation process has many positive benefits for those creating art. According to the American Art Therapy Association, "the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, increase self-esteem, and self-awareness, and achieve insight." We are so happy to be able to send another life-changing art kit to Josie Ray, and we thank each and every one of you who have supported Art to People and helped us send another art kit to a person in need!
