INTRODUCTION TO ART THERAPY
There’s so much more to art therapy than colouring books or mandalas! Not only is art therapy a gentle way to increase your wellbeing and reduce stress, it also enhances your creativity and self-awareness. Imagination, spontaneity, curiosity and playfulness are all developed through the processes of art therapy.
In this workshop you will gain an understanding of what art therapy is through hands-on art making experientials.
You will learn the difference between art therapy and therapeutic art.
You will learn techniques for releasing the stress of the day and use art to get centred.
You will also learn a surprising technique on how you can use art as a way to gain more insight into a dilemma or problem you would like to solve.
Art therapy isn’t about learning technical art skills but rather about learning to express yourself freely and to use art in a personal way to gain more insight. For that reason no art skills are required and we will be using basic materials.
I aim to create a safe and judgement-free environment where sharing and discussing our personal image-making is encouraged as it adds a lot to the experience of the group. However, know that you will not have to share if you do not feel like it.
All materials are provided
What to Bring
openness and curiosity
Reviews from previous participants:
“The teacher created a very comfortable and non-threatening environment that invited group members to contribute to discussion and share their personal stories. It was very informative and a great introduction to art therapy.” - Dannii
“I learnt the difference between therapy art and art therapy. Importantly the process is the key not the quality of the output. Reflection on the process and product can generate ways of expressing a dilemma/issue/emotion through metaphor that could not be done through other forms of communication. The format allows people to open up and be frank about sensitive issues in their lives.” - Roger
