    EVEN AS WE CONTINUE TO REOPEN THE PANDEMIC CREATED SO MUCH STRESS THAT WE CAN FEEL EMOTIONS THAT AREN'T EASY TO PROCESS

    SOME PEOPLE ARE TAPPING IN THROUGH EXPRESSIVE ART THERAPY TO EXPRESS FEELINGS AND FIND PEACE Reporter: SHE OFFERED HER FIRST ONLINE CLASS DURING THE PANDEMIC BECAUSE SHE NEEDED IT I NEEDED TO GET IN THE STUDIO I NEEDED TO MAKE ART AND I ALSO WANTED TO DO IT WITH OTHERS

    Reporter: HER GROUPS MET ONLINE ONCE A WEEK THEY WOULD START WITH A MEDITATION ALLOW YOUR DAYS TO SOFTEN Reporter: THEN MOVE INTO ART MAKING WITH A FOCUS ON THE PROCESS, NOT THE PRODUCT THERE IS A HUGE AMOUNT OF RESEARCH THAT HAS PROVEN USING THE ARTS HELPS US UNDERSTAND OURSELVES IN WAYS THAT WORDS CANNOT

    Reporter: COLLAGE, PAINTING, PARTICIPANTS CREATE AND CONNECT BREAKING FROM THE GROUP TO MAKE THEIR ART, THEN REJOINING TO DISCUSS IT BE GIVEN A NEW PERSPECTIVE IS INVALUABLE Reporter: THEY TOOK THE CLASS AND THEN OFFERED HER OWN SESSIONS AT NO CHARGE TO DOCTORS IN CANADA I THINK FOR DOCTORS, IN PARTICULAR, TO FIND A SAFE PLACE TO BE ABLE TO SHARE AND EXPRESS WHAT THEY ARE GOING THROUGH IS SO IMPORTANT

    WHEN WE EMERGE FROM THIS, WHAT WILL BE THERE? Reporter: MAKING AND SHARING ART DOESN'T CHANGE THE TOLL OF THE PANDEMIC BUT IT DOES ALLOW PEOPLE TO PROCESS AND SHARE EMOTIONS THAT CAN FEEL OVERWHELMING RELEASE THE FEELINGS INTO A FORM OF CREATIVITY WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU THEN SAY OKAY, IT IS THERE I CAN MOVE ON

    Reporter: THE BENEFITS CAN LINGER SHE GOT AN E-MAIL FROM A DOCTOR IN ONE OF HER SESSIONS ABOUT USING AN EXERCISE THEY DID AND GETTING THROUGH A DIFFICULT DAY, IT WORKED SHE WAS ABLE TO MOVE ON AND SEE PATIENTS ALL OF US NEED TO DO SOMETHING TO KEEP OUR MINDS OFF OF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE WORLD
