Some feelings and emotions are difficult to articulate through words. Sometimes we might not know what exactly the feeling or the emotion is that we are experiencing at the moment. Art is a tool that one can use to express those unresolved and unexplained feelings. There is no right or wrong way to express one's feelings through art. Hence, there is no right or wrong answer in art. And that is the beauty of it.
Let’s say that you are given a blank canvas and some paint. That canvas is wholly yours to use. You don’t need to be an artist or even creative to be able to use art as a tool. Everything that you draw, paint, create, build, and pour into the canvas is your own unique piece of art. This is your opportunity to concentrate on yourself in a creative manner. You own that canvas, and you get to choose the colors, shapes, images, and symbols that fit your own ideal world.
Through self-expression you will learn more about yourself, and be able to communicate unexplored feelings, emotions, thoughts, and problems in a non-judgmental manner. It provides you with freedom to show your true self. It is a stress reducing and self-esteem and self-awareness increasing activity that anyone can engage in. Followed with the completed art piece you will also be given guidance that will help you furtherly explore your unconscious which will be a healing process.
Art is a beautiful tool that everyone regardless of their age, gender, race, and cultural background can be engaged in. The beauty of having no wrong or right answer will provide the space for personal growth.
