About ‘Express Yourself’:

Teenagers will have the opportunity to explore art activities that encourage spontaneity, playfulness and imagination in a safe and inclusive environment.

All activities have a focus on the creative process and freedom of expression instead of an end-product.

This course is best suited to teens who would like to explore more about their creative expression and their own preferences while making art.

Sessions will include creative warm up exercises, collaborative creating in groups and personal enquiries and reflections through creative expression. There will be many different art materials, as well as suggested art activities available to experiment with. Jaana Sahling will be there to support and encourage the participants throughout the sessions.

About Art Therapy:

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).

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.
