Here at Indigo North Counseling, LLC we do a lot of creative activities. Art, poetry, photography, self portraits, collages, repetitive pattern drawing, coloring, sculpting, visual storytelling, sand tray, origami, autobiographical fairy tales, and even general arts and crafts are all explored here...if and when the client is interested. Some of the activities are for expressive purposes (i.e. it tells a story or creates an image for a specific feeling, life experience, or person). Other activities are for calming and quieting the mind (i.e. repetitive and meditative drawing, coloring, or doing dot to dots).
People often ask what kind of art based or expressive activities occur behind closed doors, so I created a gallery of photos. Please note that I do not use photos of client's work-- I often make examples of the activities I do with clients so I can share them with others.
If you're interested in learning about creative expression activities and art-based therapy projects I have written the following books on the subject:
