Art Therapy Humour – “When you just gotta get it out!”

While you are here – please check out my home page!

During my art therapy journey, particularly in the early years, where I was using art to express pent-up emotions such as grief and despair; I found myself feeling just like this very clearer but simple illustration.  It came to me via my Facebook page from “Art Therapy Without Borders” and its caption is just spot on.  The act of painting and writing my accompanying painting stories did just this for me – “art therapy helps to get what’s in your brain out on paper” (Mead. 2014).

I love its simplicity!  For me it clearly illustrates just what it is like to use “art for therapy” in three simple sketches and yep…have been here!

    • Thanks Gillian … when I first saw this cartoon, going back some time ago now … it just really seemed to capture how it feels when life’s in a muddle. How it can feel when you can just get it all out of your mind and into words or art … warm regards Karen
