Art Therapy Activity 2: Painting Emotions

emotion paintings

1. Divide a piece paper into 6 or 8 squares by folding. 

2. Write an emotion at the bottom of each square. 

3. Using watercolor or other art supplies, paint any design you think represents each emotion. Think of representations such as color that illustrate the emotion and shapes tht give form to the emotion. Try to make each composition abstract by avoiding words, face and recognizeable images. 

4. Choose your favorite and write on a post it note why it is your favorite.
