Anger is a natural humane reaction when faced by an unwanted condition. Anger has a close relation with negative emotion. In the juvenile detention centre, there are many potential causes of anger such as lack of freedom and a very controlled environment. One of the solutions suggested to reduce anger is through art therapy. Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy using art as its main media to express and communicate a person’s feeling. In this research, art therapy is used so that the subject could express and reduce their anger. The participants of this research are eight male adolescents with the age range between 15 to The methodology of this research is quasi- experiment with one group pretest-posttest design. The art therapy intervention is conducted in six sessions with one session per week. Based on the result of the intervention for six sessions, art therapy could reduce the six out of eight participants’ anger. There are no significant changes in anger expression
