OLIC also introduce expressive art into the mentor-ship and life skill program. Expressive art is a combination of dance, writing, visual art, drama, music and other creative art. Expressive art enhances individual development. It can improve the well-being and contribute to lowering anxiety and stress, improving self-awareness and self-esteem, strengthening a relationship, regulating behaviour and advancing social vices.

 

 

 

 

 

Expressive art help teens feel a sense of normalcy without judgment, allowing them to show their personality and bring attention to their strength. They awaken a teen’s imagination and creativity to help them discover where they are and how to engage their senses. They also bring a sense of calm to their body and positively impact mindset, interpretation of surrounding and emotional state.

By putting their feeling into poem, song, painting, dancing and acting it gives teenagers a safe outlet for negative emotion through an enjoyable activity which accelerates the reality and growth process.

Expressive art can enhance social development by providing support without judgment from peers, parents and therapist. It allows the teen to appreciate the difference between people and accept each other individual perception.
