Endless shades of the soul - Psychoart
Why did you use that precise color? What does that spot in the bottom right corner indicate? And why did you draw the Sun so big?
Humans have expressed themselves with symbols throughout history and their importance has been acknowledged by the social sciences a long time ago. In one of many researches it was shown that individuals going through some difficulties often expressed themselves in drawings and other artworks, which led many to explore the use of art as a healing strategy. Today, art therapy is based on the belief that self-expression through artistic creation has therapeutic value for those who are healing or seeking deeper understanding of themselves and their personalities.
Art, either the process of creating it or viewing other’s artworks, is used to help people explore their emotions, develop self-awareness, cope with stress, boost self-esteem, and work on social skills.
Are you scared of something? Do you want to leave something behind you? Or do you just want to celebrate life? Every line, every angle and every colour has its own story. What’s yours?
