16 expressive art exercises you can do at home


This article introduces different mediums for therapeutic art. The range here is very creative. From sock puppets to paint, you don’t have to be artistic to find ways to express yourself. The process is relaxing and the scenarios you set for yourself (see the prompts in the article) make it easier to act out or express the feelings vs sitting with it jumbled in the your mind. Be sure to record your thoughts and emotions this represents for you. If your feelings and emotions are strong or scary please don’t sit with them by yourself. We have provided resources if you need help, or speak to your caregiver or counselor. Getting the feelings to the surface is part of the path towards healing – please share them with someone with can help.
