Express Yourself: Make Art
Expressive art is art that helps you express emotions and learn about yourself. You can practice it on your own or in a workshop. You can also work one-on-one with an art therapist. It is a fun and creative way to explore your thoughts and feelings. And it is another tool you can use to help you cope with daily stress.
Expressive art can involve any type of art. Here are a few tips to consider as you create:
• The art you create is just for you.
• You will not be judged on how well you draw, paint, or use other art forms.
• Relax and let your imagination come alive.
• Be patient and allow yourself to be creative.
Be aware that expressive art can bring up strong feelings. This is normal and will usually pass.
