- Henry David Thoreau We have ascertained by reading many studies on how effective color and art therapy is. There is something about the harmony of colors and a subconscious need to express our pain, confusion and questions on to a blank paper hoping that we get our answers and, in the process, heal ourselves. I have dug out five questions about the benefits of art therapy and how they impact and, in many ways, change our lives.
