This project was about exploring and expanding my creative self; it explored how the creative process involved in artistic self-expression can help one reduce stress, increase self-awareness, achieve insight and break down barriers that hinder creativity. The project is based on creativity models and a few art therapy techniques. It contains tangible products of my artwork which include: a visual log, a series of photographs, a note book, a „writing therapy‟ booklet, drawings and a collage. I used a wide variety of materials such as brushes, water color, crayons, chalk pastels, oil pastels, coloring pencils, markers, sketch book, construction paper, tissue paper, newspaper, food labels, spices, etc. The intangible outcomes are discussed in the „Key Learnings‟ section
