An 8-week experiential Art Therapy journey combining art activity with introductory Art Therapy concepts. Each week different art materials are introduced (e.g. paint, clay, pastels, charcoal, ink, shoe polish, pastels, sand, stones, objects etc) as a means of self expression and communication within a group format.

NO art skill is necessary in order to benefit from attending the course.

Target Audience:
Adults who are interested in and want to learn about Art Therapy. The skills and experiences gained by participants can be adapted to and incorporated in your current work spheres, as well as serve as a journey for self growth, personal insight and development.

Course Content:
Each week the group is exposed to a variety of different art mediums from which members have an opportunity to safely create and explore images and share them voluntarily within the safety of the group – thereby enabling communication, meaning, understanding, learning and personal transformation.

Basic principles of Art Therapy are explored such as the creation of a Safe Space, Boundaries, Containment, Symbol Formation, An Internal and External world and Transitional objects.
