Art-Therapy: Meeting with Childrent of the “Umit” Orphanage


On January 11, 2020, a meeting was held with 9th, 10th and 11th-graders of the «Umit» orphanage in the city of Ust-Kamenogorsk as part of the art therapy project of the Small Grants program of the US Embassy.
The senior teacher, psychologist-consultant, Yelena Nikolayevna Vdovina, conducted the “Spots” technique in order to activate their creative abilities through right-hemispheric drawing. Participants were asked to apply a drawing using watercolor on a wet sheet, then try to transform the patterns and give them names. In the course of drawing, group interaction and exchange of impressions were carried out.
The right hemisphere differs from the usual method of drawing in the way that in the first one we learn to draw objects, and in the second we see and perceive them. This method is based on intuition, while logic doesn’t help here.
Due to right-brain drawing, a person can show his individuality, fulfill his creative abilities, express himself through the drawing, enjoy the process, believe in his success, his strengths and capabilities, achieve harmony of his inner state.
