This is a simple art therapy activity to execute – The Self Portrait. There are many ways to do a self portrait. For this instance, we will leave it as wide-open as possible. Create anything, however you want with whatever you want, that speaks to who you are as a person. For this activity, any art goes here. You can draw, paint, sculpt, collage, collect…it’s totally up to you. Just come up with some way of communicating how you see yourself. There’s no mirror here, just an open canvas, your imagination, and the process by which you are creating your art.
What did you end up with? Look for any patterns within what you have. Are there any themes that you can come away with? As you’re putting your self-portrait together you can think of why you’re choosing what you’re choosing or you can reflect on your creative process later.
