This is the fourth in the series of my Therapeutic Art courses, which has been created for people who are interested in therapeutic art and the creative process, either for self exploration and healing, or for the purpose of working with other people to help support them in a therapeutic setting.
The therapeutic, creative process of self expression through art, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.
- It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way
- Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present
- Increase self esteem and develop a greater self awareness
Creating art provides an outlet to express yourself freely, which will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.
You don’t need any previous experience, and the course is suitable for everyone. Please be aware, this course will not qualify you to work as an art therapist.
What does the course cover?
The course features over one hundred lectures showcasing the talents and creativity of my students who have undertaken the exercises and activities, contained in the lectures, for the purpose of producing all of the amazing artwork showcased in the course.
We’ll be looking at how to use arts therapy for the purpose of “Expressing, Accepting & Developing our Understanding of the Self” by exploring both ancient philosophers such as Plato and Socrates, as well as looking at the more modern philosophical concepts, brought to us by people such as Karl Jung and David Hume, Heinz Kohut and many more.
We’ll also be looking at using art to explore facets of our personality and covering issues surrounding introspection, social comparison and self perception.
