Course Description

Art related activities are powerful means of personal development, among young students and across their life span. Art has strong therapeutic power and is strictly connected to our body: art activities can influence blood pressure and breathing. Art also promotes self-esteem and self-expression, empathy, self-knowledge and self-regulation, time and space management skills.

Art facilitates mental and emotional growth. As a matter of fact, it can be a great tool to promote integration and communication among students, especially the ones affected by autism, attention deficit disorders, learning disabilities etc.

The course aims to present the therapeutic power of Visual Arts through first-hand experimentation of various art techniques such as painting, 3D, collage, mixed media, photography. In addition, teachers will be involved in group and role-playing activities related to the important role of art in the case of students with special needs.

We will not delve fully into the real therapeutic context, but we will definitely create a secure environment where you can experiment the therapeutic power of art and learn how to properly respond to your students needs and requests.

Participants will be involved in an active learning process, focusing on personal experience and self-expression, combining cognitive and emotional elements to ensure long-lasting retention of new knowledge.

This course gives great insight into art therapy and its benefits. The trainer is wonderful and expert, she is trying to meet the needs of each participant. The only thing is that most of the presented activities were for school children and adults, and we came from kindergarten so we can use the activities only for our teachers.

This course offers knowledge of strong therapeutic power of art, mental and emotional growth using special techniques such as painting, 3D, collage, mixed media and photography. The participants were strongly involved in to the learning process and even experienced art therapy outdoors. The course teacher was not only a professional in her own field but also an inspiring individual. The organization of the course was perfect and I would recommend it to every educational worker.
