Carolyn Howells

This mindfulness Art Therapy workshop is tutored by Carolyn Howells (BA Psych, Dip Art Therapy, Cert Mindfulness), a qualified Art Therapist and Florist. She is passionate about the benefits available to health and well-being through the practice of art and floral design.

In this workshop we will look at stress management using art therapy,
relaxation and mindfulness techniques.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The different types of stress and how they affect the body
  • The benefits of mindfulness in managing stress
  • Bodyscan relaxation – rest the body
  • 5-second relaxation – to move to calm quickly
  • Relaxation art – to calm
  • Introduction to mindful meditation – rest the mind

Art therapy is for self-exploration, as no-one else can interpret your artwork; only you know what you think and feel and express through the art. There is the opportunity to share and gain new understanding through the verbal process if you choose to.

No creative ability is required for Art Therapy, it is more about drawing a
colour, shape and/or symbol to represent a feeling, not the outcome of the
artwork. Some of the mediums we will use are collage, acrylic paints, and pastels.
