Are you a certified art therapist or just another artist teaching art and claiming you are an art therapist. I am a grad student for art therapy and this doesn't even sound like art therapy. Sounds like someone who loves art. I will give you a second chance by listening to the next blog. Also in order for a person to heal themselves with proper direction they should see an art therapist.
