An art therapy project with the Seraphic children

Art therapy is a technique that allows the expression of the deepest self through different methods. It is a form of empathic communication that allows us to get in touch with the most intimate sphere of our being. For those with serious disabilities, such as the children welcomed by the Seraphic Institute of Assisi, colors, brushes, cloth, paper, newspaper clippings and clay are vehicles to express their emotions and communicate with the world around them.

Art therapy is a constantly evolving therapeutic approach that today involves the application of new digital technologies. Thanks to the support of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation, the Seraphic Institute of Assisi is experimenting with this new and technologically focused art-therapy approach, where children with serious disabilities through images on video and a special camera sensitive to movements, can find themselves immersed in a new reality, with new sensory stimulation that will help them communicate.

A project that Seraphic Institute is carrying out, together with the Atlas Center, is a trial experiment with a small group of young guests. To discover how art and technologies can help children with multiple disabilities visit the page labeled Art therapy and technology.

Many thanks to Constantine, the Seraphic Art therapist, who accompanied us to discover the many facets of art therapy and the colors and works created by the children of the Institute.
