This art therapy course can be enjoyed by everyone and by all ages. You don’t need to be a great artist, or indeed consider yourself to be particularly creative. All you need is an imagination and an open mind to get the most from this course.
We have a section on self exploration and healing painful emotions, as well as a section for pure enjoyment and recreation. You’ll also find a section on therapeutic art for family bonding. This is great for better communication and an appreciation for each other, as you learn and create with one another.
Art can be incredibly useful for children who may have experienced bullying or trauma and can provide a safe sanctuary to share our feelings and emotions.
Art therapy can be described as being an expressive and creative, form of therapy.
The therapeutic, creative process of self expression, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present
Increase self esteem and develop a greater self awareness
Having an outlet to express yourself freely, will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.

Art Therapy may sound a bit daunting, especially if you believe yourself not to be particularly artistic or creative. However, this need not be an issue, as the purpose of art is simply to express, and not to judge, or compare.
Art should be an extension of how you are feeling, and for that you are your own expert.
With well over 30 exercises and activities, here are just a few included in the course:
Scribble drawing for relaxation
Painting your emotions
Exploring our inner and outer self
Self soothing images
Creating your future with a vision board
Create your own emotions wheel
Zentangles and mandalas
Accessing your inner child
There’s also some super fun things to enjoy with younger ones, like face painting and creating your own pinata.
