Art has been used throughout human history as an effective instrument to express, understand and process our emotions in a creative and proactive way, especially because our minds understand the abstract and symbols better than the language. Art enables us to connect to the deeper levels of ourselves through our subconscious mind and so heal and release past emotional pain, reduce stress, increase creativity, our intuition and self-esteem, find clarity and meaning and by that gain and maintain balance, peace and a joyful state of being.
As our inner emotional world has a major impact over our mental and physical reality, it is important that we know how to deal with our feelings and process our e-motions correctly. To become proactive, not reactive and make sure that we have a control over our emotions, not our emotions having a control over us.
Every workshop will give you a better understanding of the Art Therapy process and it's benefits and will learn some of the most helpful tools and techniqes to use Art Therapy yourself in the comfort of your own environment in the future.
A guided meditation allows us to relax and be fully present for the workshop by releasing the unnecessary thoughts, worries and stress. It also sets an intention in us to open up, explore and experiment with the art activities authentically and without judgement.
There's a choice of creative exercises for the group to work on individually while receiving a guidance from the mentor. You have a choice of various mediums and tools to work with. You can choose drawing with pencils, crayons, painting with watercolours or acrylics, colouring with various mediums, creating a collage, creative writing etc.
I use some of the ancient therapeutic techniques such as sacred geometry - specific shapes and configurations, materials, various mediums, colours and symbols considered re-balancing, calming and healing.
Everyone has their own way, vision and unique experience and working with a group enables us to help each other facilitate this mindful process, get inspired by how others approach it and we also have an opportunity to learn something new while interacting with others.
The workshops involve working in a small groups of 8 - 15 people for 2,5 hour creative session. No previous art experience is necessary. All art materials are provided.
