Feelings check in book. Collage on paint samples. This is a spin off of a project @Cathy Malchiodi | Art Therapy introduced in a class. I'm using this in my internship at a high school. Have the students pick a paint color which matches how they are feeling and then decorate it. Sometimes I add an activity to it, such as, write a poem or find a photo to go along with the mood. They get really into it!

Repurposed door mat. This is one of those idea's that I have had but just never took the time to even hold the mat up against the wall to see how it looks. I love it!! I even love the idea of using the door mat as a stencil for other wall art projects. Using different colors of spray paint will even change the feel of the mat design. This really looks amazing!
