"Art isn't about interpreting a drawing. It's about being with and attuning to the child in the process of creation." - Lisa Dion
Art in the playroom can be a challenge, especially for therapists who believe they are artistically limited. But art provides a necessary and informative outlet for children. It's not the final product that's important; it's the process that counts. Being present and attuned keeps the therapist from painting themselves into a corner of insecurity and self-doubt.
