Art as Therapy

Creative Art Therapy is being utilised more commonly as a form of mindfulness and relaxation. The ability to tap into your inner-self and creatively express thoughts, emotions and feelings in colour and imagery is of great therapeutic benefit. Art as Therapy utilises the foundations and concepts of Art Therapy blending it within a broader more simplistic framework suitable for individuals wanting to tap into their creative-expressive side, without the hang-ups of being an artist.

Course content:

  • Structured creative activities enabling individuals to connect with their inner creative self.
  • Using simple fun artwork techniques as a way of expressing feelings and emotions and learning to relax and de-stress in the process.

Focus is on the process of creating fun art and creating a personalised creative self-care tool kit, utilising mixed media and techniques; drawing, doodling, painting, collage and creative journalling.

Topics covered on a general basis:

  • Colour and Emotions (Uplifting through Colour)
  • Managing Stress
  • Creative Goal Setting
  • Creative Journalling.
