Sensory Art is based on neuroscientific research, psychological theory and expressive art therapy. Practicing sensory art focuses on the brain’s capacity to adapt and develop pathways to learning through stimulation of the senses.

Sensory art activities have been shown to produce changes in the brain that reflect improvements in enhanced attention skills and cognition with participants often showing significant gains in emotional awareness, communication, coping, emotional awareness, creative thinking and sensory information processing.
