I did a lot of art as a kid, and then after college I stopped. This book helped me get back in touch with my creative side and not think so critically. It revived what I love about doing art, what it means to me, and why it's important. It's not about the end product - it's about the process, the expression and connecting to yourself. The activities were fun, and I looked forward to coming home after work to try a new one. With each of the various activities, there were a lot of tips on how to relax and explore - almost like a meditation. For anyone who is "afraid" to do art, this is a good guide, and you'll learn about yourself in the process. They would also be fun to do with a friend or in a group! The symbol dictionary was interesting, and although I have experience drawing and painting, the technical instructions took me back to the basics like a fresh start. It was well-written, in depth but not mind-boggling, and I loved the quotes from famous artists peppered throughout the book. The art materials included were a decent start, but you'll probably what to augment.

I really admire the voice that comes through the pages of this little book: it's clear & encouraging. And it's reassuring that the author strikes a balance between the practical details of making art (at home) and the inner process and deeper meanings of creativity. She offers guidance on all fronts.

I find the instructions to be very well thought-through, sometimes more detailed than necessary, but then they leave nothing in doubt for a beginner, and a more experienced reader can deal with that. The projects are really quite imaginative. On the whole, an interesting menu and appealing ingredients in this little art therapy cookbook!

If I had to make a criticism, it might be that the print is a little fine & delicate, but that's MY eyes. So it goes into my "magnifying" bookstand.

As a student in a graduate level art therapy program, I am upset with this item. It advertised as a book of experiential ideas when it is really just a book with basic art projects. This is NOT something a person should label as "Art Therapy". Its a waste of money.

Some ideas for for non-art therapists but not what I was expecting. Would not have purchased if I saw it in a store.

Not exactly what I thought I was ordering. Had I seen it at the book store I would have passed.
