Doin’ the mess around

A lot of messing around gets done in art therapy sessions.

Which I love. Play is so important for children, essential to brain development, to the growth of imagination, dexterity, cognition, emotional health.

It’s important for adults too. When we’re in a state of play, we have a sense of engagement, a way to escape time, and the process itself is more important than the product.

I spend loads of time playing, with kids, with friends, and by myself. Here’s some messing around with Kwik Stix and a Sharpie marker.
