! Data from - Drawing in a Circle Therapeutic benefits on anxiety in high and low stress conditions
Prior research suggests that creating art can reduce mental health symptoms, such as anxiety. It has also been proposed that creating art within the geometric shape of a circle may confer additional therapeutic benefits. However, it remains unclear whether creating art within a circle or creating art with no restrictions reduces anxiety in both low and/or high stress conditions. A total of 158 students participated in an experimental 2 (stress/no stress) x 3 (draw within a circle, draw freeform, and control) between-subjects design. Anxiety levels significantly decreased across all three conditions after a stressor, but only the drawing conditions decreased anxiety below baseline levels. Results suggest that drawing within a circle and drawing freeform both reduce anxiety following a stressor.
