Along the same lines as the self-portrait, the idea of self-exploration is a very important part of any art therapy. It can also be very rewarding. As you go through the artistic process and creative expression buds and grows, you may notice certain things about yourself that you wouldn’t have otherwise noticed.
It’s important to be open and not hold back when expressing yourself creatively. Self-exploration can be a hindrance when trying to communicate via normal language and expression, but with art therapy you are giving yourself the artistic license to really explore and not only find, but define new things about yourself.
