Abstract

This research was to investigate the intervention effect of art-making on the anxiety symptoms of college students. A sample of 400 college students took part in this research. They were assigned to the experiment group (n = 200) and the control group (n = 200) according to Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS) scores. Unlike the control group, the experiment group received a standard art-making program under the supervision of trained instructors for a period of twelve sessions two times weekly which was continued for six weeks. Self-Rating Anxiety Seale (SAS) and Hamilton Anxiety Scale (HAMA) were used to assess anxiety symptoms level. Significant decreases in anxiety symptoms (p < 0.05) were found in the experiment group compared with the control group. Using the art-making program to relieve anxiety, the shortest intervention period is three weeks. Art-making can effectively alleviate college students’ anxiety, and also can effectively improve the physical health, mental health, and social health levels of college students.
