Anchor Art

Here's an activity I created last week for a lower functioning, geriatric art therapy group.


Talk about the importance and functions of anchors.  Give patients a copy of an anchor like the one above.  Have patients decorate the anchor.  Talk about the importance of support systems and ways that our support system can help us overcome difficulties in life.  Instruct patients to write down the names of people in their support system and specific ways they can be helped.  Have patients share their anchors.  Talk about how patients can communicate their needs to their support system to get the help they need.
