Scribble Art

Since we can’t run our group art therapy during lockdown we decided to create an online ‘art AS therapy’ group instead – this is an informal drop-in type session where we just chat and create as the mood takes us.

Last week we had a go at doing some scribble art, which worked really well so this week we tried a suggestion to do it with our non-dominant hand.

The idea is to draw with your eyes shut and see what pops out at you from the resulting squiggles.

All members of the group get something different and it’s really exciting to see what happens – give it a go!

The online sessions are hosted by an Art Therapist but are strictly NOT art therapy sessions, just a place to chat and make art with whatever you have to hand – we had a person join today and said it was the first time she’d drawn!
