When you just don’t have the words………
When it’s hard to express your thoughts or your feelings making your own art can help
Making art can be relaxing, it can give you time out of your busy day. You can colour in some shapes, make a collage or just doodle.
Art for well being doesn’t require any special materials or expensive items.
As an art therapist I get to play around with art materials everyday and really enjoy just making marks and seeing what they turn into.
I like making marks with oil pastels and watercolour paints blending and mixing colours
I have been experimenting with ways to share art making and making meaning. I loved finding, making and using representations that reflect my experience.
This process supported me to collect and share my responses to events and issues that have been in my mind this week, this year, this lifetime.
