Taal Inc. Art Talks: Art Therapy

What is Art Talks?

Introduced in August 2013 – Art Talks is a long-term, research-based, inclusive and experiential arts-based intervention program that uses tools such as Expressive Arts Therapy, and Creative Arts Therapy for special groups like

  • Children and or young adults with mental health needs
  • Women Self Help Groups
  • Women’s drumming circle
  • Underprivileged Groups

  • Geriatric Groups
  • Drum circles for seniors

Art Talks

Under Art Talks, specific therapeutic goals are identified upon commencement of the program for every individual participant and positively influenced through arts-based interventions such as

  • Rhythm (Drumming)

  • Creative Movement

  • Visual Art

  • Expressive Art

  • Art Therapy
  • Speech and Drama (Theatre)
  • Yoga and Pranayama
  • Sports Drills & Skills


We Primarily Work on the Areas of

  • Skill Building

  • Behavioral Problems
  • Life skills
  • Speech and Communication
  • Expression
  • Self-Awareness
  • Anger, Anxiety and Stress

Another unique feature about these sessions is the inclusiveness they bring to the table. There is something for everyone. For example, for geriatric populations, we have specially curated Drum Circles for Seniors or our power-packed, rhythmic Women’s Drum Circles. All of which use Expressive Arts Therapy as their foundation.
