About this course:

This Creative Art Therapy course focuses upon developing an individual creative process. The course enables participants to:

  • engage with their personal art making process
  • explore ways to get into their creative flow
  • untangle from a creative block

This course will offer a space to reflect on how we are feeling right now and to examine how we want to be in the world going forward. Participants are invited to engage with many different art materials and modalities such as drawing, painting, collage, and writing to experience the transformational power that lies within creatively inquiring into our emotions.

The focus of this course is on the creative process rather than the outcome or skills, so participants will find a welcoming, inspirational and safe space to explore the beauty of creating with their hands.

About Art Therapy:

Art Therapy is for creative and personal expression, well suited to anyone who wants to slow down and connect with their inner self, with others and with their surroundings. No creative ability is required for Art Therapy, and you do not require any prior art making knowledge or experience. Art therapy is primarily for self-exploration. As no-one else can interpret your artwork; only you know what you think and feel and express through the art.

This course is not for learning new technical skills, so if you are looking for art instructional courses, please see our current courses for a more appropriate class.

Class places are limited to ensure one-on-one tuition.

Jaana Sahling is a specialist in the creative process and holds an MA in Experiential and Creative Arts Therapy (MIECAT) and a BA in Fine Arts (Nottingham Trent).
