I've been and although I didn't cry, it still moved me in a way inside. I was able to express myself in my art. I slept better and felt connected hearing everyone's stories. It lasted all weekend! <3

Was yours group sessions?
 
If you could call poetry art, I've done poetry and I've found it therapeutic. Sometimes if I feel a panic attack coming on, I grab a pen and some paper and just write whatever comes to mind. That helps me calm down.
 
I haven't done art therapy with a real therapist - but I have found drawing and working with colors to be very therapeutic - not in any rational way that I can explain, but all I know is it helped untangle deeply rooted emotional knots and conflicts, perhaps too deep and complex for me to communicate verbally, so resolving them through art was more effective. I hope it goes well for you!

I get that art has always helped when i'm emotional.

Interesting poetry frustrates me too much for that to work but i'm glad it helps you.
