In my 'other life', I am a consultant on leadership development. I often include art based/right brain activities in these programs.
Recently, a colleague and I completed a 9 month program with a wonderful group of people at a government agency. In our closing, I designed an art-based activity. I painted canvases and collaged a piece of hand painted watercolor paper to each one. I used a wide range of colors. Each participant then selected a canvas, and drew their own hand in outline, and added affriming words that described their strengths. The participants then added an affirmation to everyone' else's canvas--it becomes sort of a word portrait. Here's mine--and the wonderful words that these great people wrote for me. Thanks Everyone!!
