Interactive Art Therapy as a Therapeutic Tool

It's not just another quaint idea!

Interactive Art Therapy has deeper meaning to those searching for a distinctive and unique way of expressing one’s triumphs, as well as over-coming life’s tragedies.  It is art with a purpose.  As a counseling tool, our Interactive Art prints were created to aid in the healing process in a lasting and visual way.

Both designs, “Rooms in My Heart” and “The Wisdom Tree”  (18”X12” and 12”X18”, respectively), are copies of original watercolor paintings designed to be personalized by the owner, or recipient, of each print.  These prints are appropriate to use for adults and children who are dealing with abuse, divorce, grief, or loss of any kind.  For interactive art therapy, the possibilities are limitless.

“The Wisdom Tree” print can be used to write down positive and encouraging words to focus on, pointing towards a brighter, hopeful future for those who deal with depression. Frame and hang the print so the person can view it often, and it can serve as a supportive influence in their environment. Tell them if they “Leaf” those positive thoughts, they take “Root”, and they will “Branch Out” to become “Oak Tree” sized attitudes!

Another suggestion for interactive art therapy is for the counselor to ask someone dealing with a tragic event or trauma, such as abuse, to fill in “The Rooms in My Heart” with the names of people they love and trust, or positive events they hold in their heart. Also, ask the client to keep one “room” empty and blank, signifying the person or event that caused pain and hurt in their life.

Slowly, as they are ready, letter by letter, ask the client to fill a word such as “forgiven” or “healing” in that space. They will learn that the wounded part doesn't disappear, but the rest of their life and heart becomes so much more prominent and will eventually overshadow the wounded space.
