Transcript of Artistic Expression as a Coping Mechanism

Artistic Expression
as a Coping Mechanism

by Justine Gleason, Period 3
What is Art?
Extremely broad
Unique power of expression
Therapuetic
Communicative
Coping?
Body's response to stress
good and bad methods
emotions-> healing
*Healing through art*
Why Do We Cope With It?
Unique power to every artist
sense of control
creativity stimulates the mind
provides distraction
working with one's passion = happiness
How Have I Coped With It?
Anticipation of a major surgery
Released 'baggage' onto artwork
Best work I'd ever made
infinite possibilities of blank canvas
sadness (e.g. soft, swirling strokes, dejected atmospheres)
frustration (e.g. paint splatters, wild strokes, rough textures)
mood of painting up to artist
Painting
Chromotherapy
visual spectrum's affect on mental/emotional health
can affect mood and performance
red:anger
green/blue: "restful colors"
Green focuses directly on retina; less of a strain on eyes
Mind associates red with danger/anger
artist mood can be judged by color in work
Art Therapy
doing art tasks such as painting to help diagnose/treat disorders
Therapists find it easier to diagnose through art (specifically painting)
- why?: it's an easy way to communicate difficult feelings
Other Benefits:
Children:
- Increased attentional abilities
- other developmental benefits
Elderly
- increases cognitive performance

Sketching
Poetry
open-ended medium
thoughts into rhythm
freedom to express thoughts and opinions, vent
no one can stop you from expressing emotions that may cause controversy
writing something impressive -> pride and accomplishment
authors can sort out own situations in their stories
power
escape into another world
diverse emotions give writing flavor
expand emotional + intellectual maturity
control
Storytelling
Film-making
liberty
control
more demanding toward artist
much wider scale of control
power to make viewer laugh, cry, etc
telling a story
Dance
art involving body and it's movements in rhythm
advantage: physical exercise, overcome shyness, & bring out true energy
can be slow and graceful or aggressive
stirs up emotions; excitement, curiousity, amazement
Instrumental
healing affects of music
many intellectual and emotional benefits
sense of acheivement
music -> emotional response in the brain
learning takes constant trial error and dedication
teaches discipline and dedication
Singing
Physical, emotional, and social benefits
improved circulation, sleep benefits, lung expansion, anxiety control
improved self esteem and confidence
requires perfection, each note pitch perfect
achieving this feat is uplifting and energizing
overall improved mood and reduction of stress
Jillian Jensen
Design
to concieve a graphic representation for a purpose
arranging elements in a way that is pleasing to the eye
freedom on a visual aspect
such total control is comforting
distraction
helps purge excess tension, performing tasks so demanding

Good for drafting, quick ideas
Can vary between a few seconds and a few hours
Subject varies upon individual
Easy way to:

several incomplete sketches can be more enjoyable than a few major projects
liberty: mistakes, being more unusual
less pressure for perfection -> easier process with less frustration
Distraction
allows organization of thoughts; brainstorming
Healing process
