Art therapy is all about expressing yourself creatively. 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.

Masks are used as a projective tool. They are a part of expressive therapies. 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.

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.
