21 Ways To Do Art Therapy And Put Your Thoughts In Order

Sometimes, the solution to your problem just won’t come into your head, yet your thoughts are spinning at a 100 kilometres an hour, and you feel like your brain is going to explode.
It’s times like this that you could do with trying some ’art therapy’ as promoted by Viktoria Nazarevich. At its most basic, the only preparation you need to carry out for this is to grab a pencil and a sheet of paper. Then, just start drawing. It doesn’t even matter what you draw. Within a certain amount of time, your thoughts will become more harmonious and you’ll calm down.

To help you get started, here’s what to do if you’re feeling…

Tired: draw flowers
Angry: draw lines
In pain: build a model
Bored: colour in a sheet of paper in various colours
Sad: paint a rainbow

Scared: knit something
Worried: make a doll
Indignant: tear a piece of paper into small pieces and arrange it into a pattern
Anxious: do some origami
Tense: draw patterns

Nostalgic: draw a maze
Disappointed: copy a portrait or painting
In despair: draw your way out
Confused: draw an Indian mandala

That you need to restore your strength: make a landscape painting
That you can’t make sense of your feelings: paint a self-portrait
That you need to remember this moment: draw some coloured patterns
That you need to put your thoughts in order: draw honeycombs or squares
That you need to take the time to make the right choice: draw waves and circles
That you’re stuck in a rut: draw spirals
That you need to make sense of your most important goal: draw target symbols.
