5. Soft Pastel Drawing

Put your best pencils and doodle art to one side – it’s time to delve into the art of pastel drawing. In use by artists for centuries, pastels are an especially portable medium, enabling you to create colourful art with no need for water, brushes or palettes.

What exactly is a pastel?

A pastel is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. The pigments used in pastels are the same as those used to produce all colored art media, including oil paints; the binder is of a neutral hue and low saturation. The color effect of pastels is closer to the natural dry pigments than that of any other process.

How to relieve stress using Artwork

Ever heard that you can use the benefits of art to express your creative side and also to reduce stress? Yes, it’s true that creating Artwork can really minimize anxiety and lift your mood.

So next time when you are stressed, maybe your answer could lie in the pages of a sketchbook. Don’t worry, everyone is not good at art and to be honest, it doesn’t really matter.

Wondering Why??? Okay, let me explain. Even if you are NOT good at sketching, or artwork, you can simply color Pictures that Can help Relieve Anxiety. In this technique, no Drawing Skills are Necessary.

We all understand and current medical studies also show how chronic stress negatively impacts health, potentially compromising numerous systems in the body leaving us more vulnerable to a lot of health issues. So, here are TOP proven techniques of creating artwork that can reduce stress:

1. Drawing to have a relaxation response.

Grab a pencil or sketch-pen. The repetitive and rhythmic motion of drawing helps synchronize hand and eye, body and mind, and can be used as a relaxation response.

Drawing is a right side brain activity, while stress occurs in the left side of the brain, since it is what handles logic and emotional aspects of your life. When you draw it shifts activity to the right side of the brain, which is the creative side, relieving stress and thoughts that the right brain is placing on you.  It is very rewarding to create a sketch or painting.

Drawing is similar to meditation, but in a more “productive” form.

2Release Emotion onto your page.

Without intending to draw anything in particular, simply apply your drawing utensil to a blank sheet of paper. Close your eyes. Focus on whatever emotions you’re feeling and would like to get rid off. Allow your emotion, not your mind, to dictate the movement of the pen, pencil or sketch-pen. Whatever comes out on the page is simply an expression of what you’re feeling.

Try this and you will definitely feel a lot more relaxed.

3Realize that the WORLD isn’t perfect, but it’s colorful.

The most beautiful things in this world have character and experience built into them. Imagine drawing the various shades of a morning sunshine, the dark side of night, or a budding flower. With artwork, you will realize how beautiful this world is.

4. Share your Artwork

An exquisite piece of artwork can easily be shared and bring a “smile” to the person who’s admiring it.

Benefits of Art Therapy

One of the reasons that clinical art therapy is effective is that the act of drawing and creating art can help you relieve stress in several ways. Read on to see why creating art doesn’t have to fit a certain mold to be a great idea for you.

Here are some ways that creating art can alleviate stress:
 
  • Distraction: Drawing and art can take your mind off of what’s stressing you, at least for a few minutes. It’s difficult to keep ruminating on your problems when you’re focused on creating, and if your problems stay with you, you can incorporate them into your creations. And when you’re finished being engrossed in your sketches, you should have a clearer head with which to tackle your problems again.
  • Flow: There’s a certain quality of being called “flow” that experts say is very beneficial for us. This refers to a state of being completely engaged in something to the point of being in a near-meditative state. It carries many of the benefits of meditation, leaving you much less stressed when you’re done. You can experience ‘flow’ when you’re doing creative activities like writing and even gardening. You can also get it from drawing.
  • Self-Care: Just the act of having a hobby can make you feel more balanced in your lifestyle. Sometimes, with all of life’s responsibilities, we forget that we need and deserve ‘down time’ and self-care. Taking even a few minutes on a regular basis to devote to a hobby can give you more of what you need in this area. And, with drawing, you have the additional benefit of being left with something beautiful (or at least interesting) to show for it.
 

Art Project Ideas for Stress Relief

A great way to use the act of drawing for stress relief is to maintain a sketch diary. Keeping a sketchbook can be a form of journaling, and it can be cathartic, creative, and stress relieving. You can use a journal for personal art therapy and stress management in the following ways:

 
  • Sketch pictures that describe your feelings related to things in your life that are causing you stress currently. If it’s in the back of your mind anyway, this could be a way of processing your related emotions, reducing some of the stress they carry.
  • Sketch abstract pictures that express feelings related to past stressful experiences, as a way of processing your emotions and healing. This can be a form of journaling but can be especially helpful for those who are more comfortable with ideas and emotions that don’t need to be put into words.
  • Keep a “Dream Sketch Diary”, and sketch scenes from dreams you’d like to remember or better understand. You can also keep a “Gratitude Sketch Diary” to catalog what you’re grateful for in your life. There are several different types of sketch diaries you can create and enjoy.
  • Keep a sketch diary of what you think is beautiful in life. Draw the faces of those you love, places that bring you peace, or other pieces of beauty. The process of sketching can be a great stress reliever, and revisiting your creations can also bring you some peace in the future.
  • Start enjoying some of the adult coloring books that have become popular—they can be especially relaxing for those who don’t feel artistic but want to create easy, beautiful, and stress-free pictures.
