That Art therapy project was my first time. Before attending the project, I had no idea about the project or art therapy itself. I arrived with certain expectations, anticipating that we might work on addressing psychological issues through discussions about art. However, as I immersed myself in the project, I quickly realised that it was different from our expectations.
Participants were encouraged to create their own drawings, guided by their emotions, and we even were involved in some form of drama playing without saying a single word. This approach was a wholly unique experience for me. Instead of talking about our emotions, we were expressing them through art and non-verbal communication.
As the therapy sessions progressed, and we all began to share our drawings and emotions, I found myself inspired by the different perspectives and life experiences of the participants. For me it was something deeper and more universal about the human experience.
I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the organisers. This art therapy project not only broadened my understanding of therapy but also gave me inspiration and motivation. It was an eye-opening experience that I will forever remember.
