This so amazing. Art calms Elliott’s anxiety when medication couldn’t

I shared a picture the other day that showed Elliott working on a sketch.  It looked really cool while it was a work in progress.  However, now that he’s finished it, it’s even better. 

I absolutely love this picture and I fully intend on fostering his love for drawing because it’s relaxes him.

Anything that can calm his anxieties is a really good thing. 

Elliott really, really struggles with significant anxiety and we’ve tried medication, without relief.  If art is something that can help him to cope with life better, that’s pretty amazing.

Here’s the finished Ice Palace picture he drew.  It’s inspired from the movie Frozen.

This came out great.  I love the blue and purple in the sky and how there’s a little bit of green in the ice.  Well done!  🙂
