- Expressive arts differ from aesthetic arts in that they convey a message or hold personal meaning to the artist. Expressive arts are used in art therapy to help people work through emotional issues, trauma, and more. The key to expressive arts is the process and it’s meaning to the artist, not aesthetic perfection.
- Expressive arts used in conjunction with Narrative Therapy allows art therapists to help clients re-author their stories in ways that are meaningful and empowering.
- My current pieces combine poetry, painting, and collage that represent various aspects of my life story.
