Some teens are academically oriented, and can thrive in the classroom. But others perceive life through colors, sound, images and movement. Is your teen an artist? – Sandra
There is a whole population of creative children gifted with the ability to dance, sing, paint, draw, write music, play instruments, and express themselves. Not everyone is meant to be a dentist, lawyer, engineer, scientis, or accountant.
Roderick MacIver, author of the book Art as a Way of Life says “The ancient roots of the word “art” have to do with connection, and art, at its best, is our connection to the mystery, to the parts of ourselves that are deeper and truer than the day-to-day world.
He adds “Art connects us to our dreams, to the things that can’t be explained in words, to the things that have touched our core, to our imaginary worlds, and even to our own personal chaos”
He concludes with “Our challenge as artists is to muster the technique, the vision, the persistence, and emotional courage to explore what means most to us. Our challenge as people is even greater — to live a life that is in itself a work of art.”
In my teen therapy practice, I utilize art as a medium to explore feelings that clients may still be finding words for.
If your teen or young adult child is struggling socially or emotionally, I can help you to discover the cause and remedy it.
