Counselor: Depression, Week 4 PREVIEW


Note: This is an art day – have felt pens or colored pencils and paper for students.

Students will create 3 sketches each.


Prompt for Sketch 1:

This week we’re going to do three quick sketches. This isn’t an art project. It doesn’t matter what the picture looks like, but what you realize in the process of quickly sketching something as I suggest the topic. Don’t focus on it or overthink it. Just let yourself sketch quickly as I give you each idea. We’ll take about one minute per sketch.

Prompt for Sketch 2:

Slide picture one to the left. Now, just let yourself imagine that your life could be in a place that would be really OK in regard to whatever you drew in picture one. It doesn’t have to be real, just imagined. What would it look like if that part of life were OK? You have a minute, so just a quick sketch.

Prompt for Sketch 3:

Slide that picture to the right. Now, put a piece of paper in the middle, right in front of you. Sketch one thing you could do to take one step in that direction. Just a little, tiny step.


Share your third picture. Describe the issue you drew about and what your one step might be.

Weekly Challenge

This week, keep thinking about taking steps forward, no matter how small.
