What is art therapy?

I like to re-post this every so often. What the heck is art therapy anyway?

In it's simplest definition: "Art therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate."
