state welfare organization of Iran in recent years to increase the abilities of persons with disabilities has established different art therapy rooms.

Head of SWO, Dr. Ghobadidana, in opening ceremony of the second exhibition of works of art by people with disabilities announced that,  art therapy and increasing the ability of people with disabilities has been considered this year so that more than 850 art therapy rooms have been equipped in rehabilitation centers. Since last year, more than 42,000 people with disabilities have benefited from art rooms so far. Art therapy can be defined in many ways, but the simplest way to define it is an application of the visual arts in a therapeutic context. You don’t necessarily have to see a therapist in order to experience some of the therapeutic benefits of artistic expression. There are many simple activities you can try from the comfort of your home such as art journaling, sketching, making collages, sculpting with clay, etc. It doesn’t matter what media you choose. The only thing that matters is that you feel comfortable using it.
