  • Collage – The Collage techniques refer to the usage of print media like magazines, books, pamphlets, etc. A widespread technique, widely popular among college students.


  • Drawing and Coloring – The Drawing and Coloring techniques for Art Therapy are a helpful tool to manage anxiety and stress symptoms. One of the best ways to utilize it to the fullest is to draw what you like and bring out the best of it through colors. Many surveys have revealed that it helps in mindfulness (the ability to live in present, with your thoughts and emotions tuned together).


  • Painting – My favorite and probably one of the easiest techniques for art therapy is Painting. The best way (which I feel and do) is to take a pencil (of your choice) and make a circle (or your favorite shape) without lifting your pencil. Believe me, it will not just enhance your focus but also help in de-stressing your mind.  


  • Phototherapy – Another “visual technique for art therapy is Photo-therapy. From the beginning of televised media, photographs served as a bridge for connecting and communicating feelings and memories.


  • Sculpting – Traditionally, clay or other sculpting materials have been used for art therapy. However recently, intervention in family sculpting has gauged many eyes of art therapists across the world. It reflects/personifies prominent figures of the mother or father (or even guardians) and the relationships between them.
