May 7-8: Deeper exploration of art therapy techniques and practice and variety of applications in both personal life and professional settings.

Course Objectives
Art therapy gives you the chance to use creative processes to express and learn about yourself, giving you tools to help you clarify your life goals and true desires, identify blocks and strategies to jumpstart motivation, help you identify and manage your emotions in a positive way, reduce stress, help build self-esteem and support self-love, and help inspire you.

Using art therapy approaches helps you liberate your creativity without the pressure or self-judgement about your skills or your artistic products, teaching you that the creative act itself is life-enhancing and can bring insight and even healing.

Working individually as well as in groups, the artistic process can help you connect with yourself and also give you opportunities to share with others.

It is open to those interested in applying artistic and creative activities in their work and school settings for teaching and offering others the benefits of art therapy techniques in the classroom, seminars, or workshops.
