About this course:

This 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

Jaana will discuss how participants can recognise the voice of their inner critic and go on to nurture the voice of free expression for making art.

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:

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.

    Feedback from previous Art Therapy students

    “Jaana created a fun and gentle space for people to explore their creativity and share with the group” – Anon, 2021

    “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
