Has anyone tried using art therapy in the comfort of their own home? I'm seriously considering it as a relaxation technique that I'm willing to try.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @SybilMarie I did informally. I self taught to do water colors and oils and I took an oil painting course from adult education. I found that I could spend a long time focusing on painting. I did paintings over and over until they looked the way I imagined in my mind. I think art is great.

I have not tried these, but there are quite a few free courses on art therapyi with a google search:
