Art Therapy Directive: vulnerability zoom

This has to be one of my favorite art therapy techniques.

The vulnerability zoom (original directive from inner canvas) is a process of art creation and uncovering the hidden layers of a work of art.

Here’s the basics on how it works:

  1. To begin: ask the client to create a work of art. When the client is finished, talk about the art they created.zoom-11.jpg

     

  2. Choose a spot to “zoom in” on. Imagine if we were to get a magnifying glass and view that specific spot. What would it look like?

  3. Repeat step 2.

  4. Repeat step 2 until the client feels it is the “right” time to stop. This process may go on for several sessions. And that is okay.
