Painting your thoughts – Self care art activities – Meditative painting

When painting your thoughts or follow your thoughts when painting you can calm yourself. In this video I show you an easy calm down exercise, a meditative painting. By expressing yourself through art you can learn about yourself, or find out what is bothering you and help yourself . Self care activities are very useful in times of stress. I show you what bothers me and how I react to it. I also show you how I paint while following my thought patterns and use my painting as art therapy. Art therapy step one is for me just getting of the couch and do something. By using art as therapy I create a constant reminder what art can do for me. Empowerment through art is my of working. I also often use art by other artists to help me learn more about painting and more about myself.
