This is not an artist’s guide-book — achievement is not the goal.
This is not an art teacher’s text book — skills are not the purpose.
This is not a therapist’s cookbook — art processes are not an end.
This is^ a catalog of therapeutic art ideas — art materials used spontaneously and non-directively are healing in themselves.
Within this framework:
All use of art materials outside of mis-use is OK
There are no expectations...
no shoulds or oughts... no rights or wrongs...
The goal is:at the least, enjoyment
at the best, self-expression and confidence.
