I really did got in a different direction than the worksheet on this particular day. I started off going along with the worksheet but when I got to the journaling part I just wanted to glue down appropriate cut outs out of magazines... so that's what I did.
The thing I love most about art journaling is that there are no rules - no right or wrong. Its absolutely freeing to think of your art like that! It makes it much more enjoyable.
I am really hoping that I can get this across to my clients this semester! Speaking of my clients, I wanted to share what I will be doing. I am working as an Art Therapy Intern at a local rehab hospital. I am very excited about this. I get to work with patients that are there to receive physical therapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy. Patients may have had surgery or been in an car accident. Also some patients may have suffered from a stroke or be dealing with dementia or Parkinson's disease. Its exciting to me to be in this setting because it mirrors a lot of things I would be doing while working in a VA Hospital which is my goal after graduation! Friday I shadowed a speech therapist and got to see her treat and evaluate patients. I learned so much and I am super excited to start working one on one with patients! So, while I cannot share patient information or artwork with you I will try to keep you somewhat informed about things that I learn/experience - those things that I am able to share without violating patient privacy!
Well friends, that is all for now, I hope you enjoyed the art and the intro to my internship site! Thanks for visiting. "See" you soon!!
