Whenever I lead workshops in therapeutic art activities, I see that I’m not teaching people so much as reminding them what they knew a long time ago. I’m encouraging clear access to deeper, younger parts of a person. If you took my workshops I would say to you: You don’t have to talk. You don’t have to know how to make art. You can construct an extreme dragonfly using tissue paper and foil. But you certainly don’t have to discuss your life if you don’t want to. You’re doing a great job, just being here and working on a project you like. The big thing to remember is, There are no mistakes. Everything is an experiment. When something doesn’t work the way you think it should, you might want to scream. But just try saying, “Wow, I did not know it was going to turn out like that.” Instead of making a mistake, you just invented something new.
