The art making process allows for expression without words, helps establish safety, creates opportunities for coping, and offers a way to manage feelings, thoughts, and experiences for future exploration and insight. Art activities allow students to grow in confidence. The emotional release of drawing, painting and sculpture can have healing and therapeutic effects for children. Children are naturally creative, and it is usually easier for them to draw a picture as opposed to answering questions directly. Talking to children about their drawings, or paintings and helping them interpret the art can provide an opening to get at the heart of the problem affecting the student. Making art helps children relieve stress, increase self-awareness, and develop effective coping skills, while having fun!
