Now the Summer holidays are here and this year will be slightly less hectic than last year. with chilled days in Cornwall on our own and a big family holiday at Center Parcs (hate American spelling)...there will be time to reflect and have some creative times.
As I have mentioned before, I am very interested in Art Therapy and have always carried a sketchbook around with me to catch those ideas.
Visual journaling has a long history in the field of art therapy, particularly as an approach to assist recovery from trauma or loss and as a form of stress reduction. Carl Jung is often considered to be the art therapy “poster person” for visual journaling because he maintained a regular practice of visual journaling. He generally created small circular drawings that he believed corresponded to his inner feelings and the archetypal realm of the collective unconscious. I particularly like this idea of using old texts and pictures with paint or handmade paper.
