Art therapy: Express Yourself
"If you get out of the way, the art will express itself "
Art therapy can be used as a remarkable tool, almost like a window or gateway into a person's subconscious mind. Its a fabulous non-threatening way to sneak past ones defenses, walls and cognitive roadblocks. What comes out is unfiltered, unadulterated and holds invaluable information.
I frequently use art with my clients to help them express and say things they might not always have the words to articulate. Difficult feelings, sad events, confusion, clarity - so much can be explored and reconciled thru colour and art. Clients are often surprised how much they can express and let out in ways they didn't imagine they could before.
Often times I give my more adventurous clients a huge white sheet and lots of paints and just let them express how they feel, whether it's rage or fear or confusion or hope and strength they let it all pour out on the sheet and then we have the most insightful conversations about the artwork.
There is freedom in art, the wide strokes of a brush or palette knife, the feel of paint in between your fingers, there is freedom in the colours, there is freedom because there is expression and understanding.
Art therapy is not about making something pretty or being good at art, its about the freedom of expression and hence the space for the discovery of hidden aspects of yourself.
