Arts Therapy: A Student’s Perspective on Art Therapy
Art Therapy is an area that is being used in many different settings.  This is the fifth in the series of my Therapeutic Art / Arts Therapy courses, and can be enjoyed by everyone.
This course is a student’s perspective relating to my very first arts therapy course: Arts Therapy – Arts Therapy For Self Healing (Part One).
It is a breathtaking collection of lectures that capture over eighty artists’ interpretation of the exercises I taught in my very first course: Arts Therapy – Arts Therapy For Self Healing (Part One).
You will gain an insight to their personal journeys and how they have used the course for self healing and self discovery.
Being a student of this course gives you the opportunity to be part of an intimate community and have access to a private online sharing gallery.  This is an exclusive group where my students share and support each other as we journey together using arts therapy and the creative process.
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 Therapeutic Art / Arts Therapy course.
The course comes with a lifetime access and unparalleled support from myself, which is available 365 days a year.
The course is self paced and offers you complete flexibility. Choose to study at a time and place that suits you, safe in the knowledge that help is always at hand.
Art and the therapeutic creative process of creating 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.
The therapeutic, creative process of self expression, 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 through Therapeutic Art, provides an outlet to express yourself freely, which will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.
Did you know that colouring-in books for adults are outselling cook books? Colouring-in for just twenty minutes a day, can bring you enormous benefits, including:
•A more relaxed state of mind
•Lowering stress hormones
•Help with insomnia
Therapeutic Art 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’re feeling, and for that you are your own expert.
Here’s just a few of the lectures included in this Arts Therapy course:
•Scribble drawing for relaxation
