9/3/09 Art Therapy Technique

Starry Sky Pin Picture
Population: geriatrics
Materials: 8 1/2" x 11" black construction paper, several xeroxed 8 1/2" x 11" connect the dot images, push pins, and cardboard.
Technique: Begin by discussing what a constellation is, ask if anyone has spotted any in the sky, and maybe what constellations can they recall. Place the connect the dot image over the black paper and place both over the piece of cardboard. Instruct the group to each take a push pin and push a hole through each of the dots in the connect the dot image. Be sure to help those who are unable to press a hole through both pieces of paper. When completed hold the black paper up to the window to show off the new constellation!

What art therapy tasks have you done this week?
