Michael Goren Capstone

My proposal for my capstone project was to start an art therapy club. I want to do this project because mental health is important especially in adolescents that face challenges. We would meet up during lunch on fridays in the auditorium. For our first activity we decided to create zentangles. A zentangle is a method for drawing. This exercise helps promote concentration along with creativity. When making one you start by drawing a frame on the paper. Then you divide the existing space into smaller parts. The next step is to make a pattern within the blank spaces. Another session we made our own designs on stickers which was inspired by street art. My personal experience with art is that drawing can be a calming way to express yourself when feeling anxiety. My goal for this project was to share my passion of drawing to show other adolescents how they can use drawing to deal with anxiety. I discovered that seeing the work of other artists inspires me to create my own art. It has helped me learn different techniques and perspectives towards the topic. When reviewing my peers' work it is like I am able to get a peak into their mind. It helps me get a better understanding of where their ideas come from.
