About The Book

68 prompts created by an experienced art therapist invite teens to explore their identities and to express themselves through art and drawing.

"Created by a licensed art therapist, this book may be a useful tool to support the 'healing benefits of art making and creativity'” —Kirkus Reviews

Vision and Voice: An Art-Making Journal for Teens bridges the gap between focused writing journals for teens and coloring books. The beautifully designed pages give teens a space where they can respond in imaginative, creative ways that help them to make sense of their relationships with themselves and the world.

This journal features:

• Four sections—About Being Playful, About Me, About Feelings, and About Knowing Yourself—that enable teens to explore various topics in depth.
• 68 prompts that introduce diverse approaches, coping mechanisms, and tools for emotional processing, such as gratitude, mindfulness, and stress reduction.

The non-prescriptive prompts give teens the freedom to explore and to contemplate at their own pace, on their own terms in Vision and Voice.
