What is Art Therapy Worksheets: Exploring Feelings through Art Therapy

Art therapy is all about expressing yourself creatively. Art therapies are used worldwide to uncover and let go of the innermost desires and feelings.  This worksheet is about using masks to explore your feelings and emotions. Masks represent mystery, drama,  magic, and power. When you wear a mask, you can be anyone you don’t have to be you necessarily. You can play anyone’s role. Using a mask is an excellent way of exploring & expressing yourself. It's a powerful symbol that encourages us to share our human experiences.

How will  Art Therapy Worksheets: Mask project for Art Therapy help?

In this worksheet, we will use masks as art therapy to explore yourself.  Masks are used as a projective tool. They are a part of expressive therapies. It is one of the projective techniques where there are no right or wrong answers, you just let the art uncover your innermost feelings. Using this mask as a cover will encourage you to express what you haven’t spoken before. It lets us ponder who we are, the "mask" that we wear outwardly, and how that is not similar to who we are from inside.

Instructions on how to use the Art Therapy Worksheets: Exploring Feelings through Art Therapy

 Gather some Tissue paper, Scissors, Sequins, Feathers, and then do the following.

  • Decorate the outside of the mask, representing how you believe others /world sees you
  • Decorate the inside, representing how you believe your true, inner self is. 

In the end, you are supposed to share your feelings, create different stories by using masks as an object. We all have our veils, different aspects of ourselves that are seen or not seen. This whole process just encourages us to understand ourselves more.
