In an arts therapy session the client is invited to make art in whatever form they choose. There is no right or wrong and it is not necessary to be ‘good’ at art, as the focus is on the use of the art materials and expressing oneself through them. Much enjoyment and relief can be obtained through the sensory qualities of the art materials, allowing the client to become absorbed in the experience. When finished, the art work is not interpreted by the therapist but if they wish, together they can explore and talk about the art piece and what the process of making it felt like, and means, to the client.
