"Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy Day" Drawing only from Creative Counseling 101.com

Learn the secrets of art therapy and how to assess your clients and students with this drawing activity. You can also identify short term and long term patterns with this assessment. 

This is a good art therapy activity to assess the client’s perspective on life in different stages.

By using the “Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy Day" Art Therapy Assessment Activity you will be able to see how the client views good days, okay days, and terrible days.

Materials Needed for “Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy Day" Art Therapy Activity Assessment:

White Paper (Large is best) turned horizontal

Markers, Colored Pencils, or Crayons


Directions for “Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy Day” Art Therapy Assessment Activity:

1. Fold the paper into three sections.

2. Ask the client to label each section at the top of the paper.


3. The first section will be “Sunny Day”, the second section will be “Cloudy Day”, and the third will be “Rainy Day”.

4. Compare and contrast each section to see if they are balanced between the negative and the positive.

You can see in the drawing above the client made the “Rainy Day” part of the drawing bigger and did not draw himself in the “Sunny or Cloudy Day” slots.  

Explore: Ask your client to log each day either “Sunny, Cloudy, Rainy” for a week. Discuss this log at the next session.


Continue to log the information from the art therapy activity assessment for a month to see patterns. Discuss these patterns with the client in the short term and long term of therapy.
