Expressive art is a way to explore your feelings – particularly those which can be difficult to put into words – with no skill or experience required.
Concentrating on creating art can help you slow down, relax and process your thoughts. Your unconscious mind can express feelings through pictures, colours and shapes that you might struggle to put into words. And by doing that you may begin to understand more what you’re feeling, which can help to build your confidence.
Would you like to try expressive art? Please contact your local Centre to find out more. You can find your nearest Maggie’s Centre using the search tool below.
If you’re looking to meet other people living with cancer you could also visit our Online Centre, which offers the same supportive community and practical, emotional and social support as you’ll find in all our Centres.
