About Art Therapy: 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. 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.

About ‘Introduction to Art Therapy’: This course will introduce participants to Creative Art Therapy. The focus will be on experiential practice, going through guided exercises 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, clay and writing to experience the transformational power that lies within creatively inquiring into our emotions.

    Feedback from previous Art Therapy students

    “I really enjoyed the Time to Stop – Art Therapy course by Jaana Sahling. Jaana helped create a safe space to reflect on the day each week, providing great prompts and a clear structure to allow for open creativity and exploration. The set up and materials provided were extensive and I ended up creating works that I didn’t think I would make but that I really enjoyed making and was proud of. It was an unexpectedly freeing class to be creative without pressure of a specific outcome but allowed for some beautiful and meaningful pieces to emerge. I highly recommend this course and would say to come with an open mind and trust the process. Thank you for a wonderful course!” – Anna, 2021
