This expressive drawing was done by a client during a private Zoom art therapy session. The client was clear that she was angry – and said it was “all over” her body. Using art supplies she had on hand (oil pastels and graph paper) she then drew the anger. It was a bit different from an in-person session… I usually watch both the body language and the making of the art itself… but “S” was unselfconscious and quiet as she went about the 10-15 minutes it took to draw this full-page image. I watched her. About halfway through I asked her if the anger had changed any while she drew. Yes. She felt a little better. Good. The art-making is doing its thing… it is almost impossible to not feel movement while making art. When she finished and finally(!) showed me her drawing, I was impressed with how articulate it was. BIG anger; LOTS of energy. I asked her where the anger resided in her body now and she reported that it was in her head. The perfect opening to introduce Byron Katie’s rattlesnake-in-the-desert story about all feelings originating in the head… as beliefs and self-talk which then generate our emotions. Like anyone else she was resistant to this idea, thinking that the feeling comes first. We explored the specific beliefs behind today’s anger and tried to imagine how she would feel if she dropped her story. Even though she was not ready to stop being angry we talked about how a drawing of that would look. Homework? Next session? As we ended our Zoom session, I was so grateful for the adage I repeat daily – the Art doesn’t lie. Art-making and art therapy can overcome limitations like coronavirus, distance, and teletherapy. Every single time.
