Art Therapy

Visual art is a powerful and effective way to communicate. Through drawing, painting and sculptures, art therapy alleviates stress levels, helps build self-confidence, and helps provide an understanding of our thoughts and values. For this course no talent is required, all we need is motivation to work on our difficulties and emotions while being accompanied by a professional who will guide us in this process. We will express ourselves in ways other than words. Taking an experimental approach focused on the senses and using visual art for therapeutic purposes.

Sa     Oct 10th – Nov 28        10am – 12pm 8/$70
