Foundation Course in the Therapeutic Value of Art
Artsphere has teamed up with Susan Bullough Khare to offer a course, over 4 weekends that will offer extensive hands on experience of the therapeutic value of art and also explore how art can be used therapeutically with others.
Participants will explore a range of art materials, including paint, charcoal and collage, consider relevant art work and reflect on how art can benefit themselves and their clients.
Anyone working in the caring professions, who is involved in inter-personal work, social skills, self-esteem and confidence, can enable their clients to move towards healing through creative work.
Images are a means of communication for those with limited, or impaired, verbal skills, but they are also vital for the articulate whose words can distract, defend and deceive. “Physician, heal thy self.” Only when we have worked with art materials and explored some of our own issues can we be wholly effective in working with others.
We will undertake creative work on themes such as anger, self, grief, health and powerlessness, always focusing on process not product.
We are offering a unique opportunity to undergo a journey, in a non-judgemental atmosphere of support and caring, in order to become more empathetic, accepting, congruent and fruitful with those with whom we work, live and interact.
