Using the creative art process for helping individuals explore and express their emotions is the objective of art therapy. There are endless possibilities that allow individuals to express their feelings or emotions through art. For instance, playing with the watercolors in a sensory-based activity or creating a family collage may help one explore their feelings which are reflected in their selected images.
Using art therapy to process emotions could be as simple as painting or drawing something you may be feeling on a day. Often therapists advise their clients to draw what depression, anxiety, or anger might look like to them. When they bring out their inner feelings on a piece of paper, the insights can help to start feeling better.
Art Therapy can help to turn things around, by helping individuals develop an awareness of their own feelings and stay more connected with them. Art therapy helps people work through emotional and somatic-based problems such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, panic, and addiction.
