This was my Art Therapy final. it is a self portrait made from cut paper, ink
and chalk. The frames mounted on the wall beside me are all
personal symbols that describe myself.
Here are the meanings to each symbol:
  1.  The Cat: I love all animals, especially cats.
  2. A Cupcake: I love sweets, especially cupcakes.
  3. The Eiffel Tower: My dream is to visit Paris.
  4. The African mask: Most people people do not know that I am bi-racial.
  5. The broken frame with a necklace: I study commercial arts but I am not a materialistic person.
  6. The bed frame: My favorite thing to do is sleep, though I usually pull all-nighters 3 times a week.
  7. The "No Steak" frame: I am a vegetarian
  8. The Megaphone: I am a soft spoken person.

My goal for taking art therapy
was to learn about the field while also opening up to classmates because
I am a very shy person. For my final, I shared the most about myself
in the three months I took the class.


  1. Its so gorgeous! Congratulations! :) Its great that you got what you wanted out of the class as well. Xx


    1. Thank you so much! Yes, I am so happy I took the class and faced my fears!

  2. This is lovely! I'm from a writing background as opposed to an art background, so I'm actually working on a novel revolving around an older "deadbeat" teen who undergoes art therapy sessions with a kind-hearted grad student. My grandmother was really into art therapy when she was in college, so I'm using her research to guide my writing. It's fun! I hope the class was fun as well. I wish I could have taken it at my University.

    (You proooobably didn't want or need to know all of that. Oops.)
