Art Making and Stress Reduction - Article (Psychology Today)

A recent 2016 article written by Cathy Malchiodi, PhD entitled Art Making and Stress Reduction, reviews a recently published study (Kaimal, Ray & Muniz, 2016) suggesting that art making reduces cortisol levels. After discussing the article with colleagues who teach visual arts and through our personal observations and experiences, we agreed that the practice of art-making is truly beneficial to our students and their well being.

As art teachers, can you comment on your own experiences with students?
