This has to be one of my favorite art therapy techniques.
Here’s the basics on how it works:
- To begin: ask the client to create a work of art. When the client is finished, talk about the art they created.
- 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?
- Repeat step 2.
- 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.
