“If you hear a voice within you
say "you cannot paint," then by
all means paint, and that voice
will be silenced"

Vincent Van Gogh

The Mindfulness based Art Therapy Course


Explore your creative potential through Mindfulness based Art Therapy.

The Mindfulness based Art Therapy Course provides a space for participants to explore their creative potential engaging in art making with the support of a qualified art therapist. The aim of the art making process is to enable participants to disengage from the judging mind and to remain present to the creative process.

The course is an excellent place for people to practice moment to moment mindful awareness, to learn more about themselves, their relationship with others and the world. A space to change and grow on a personal level through the use of art materials in a safe, inspiring and supportive environment.

Adam, the art therapist is able to give support in the use of different art materials, however, the purpose of the group is not to learn art making techniques. Many participants will have had no previous experience or expertise in art and the art therapist does not judge whether the art is “good” or “bad” or make a clinical diagnosis based on the images produced.

About the sessions

Adam will provide a range of art materials including clay, paints and pastels. The course will involve a small number of people coming together on a regular basis, with a view to developing their capacity to cope with the challenges and difficulties in their lives, whilst also building greater self-awareness and insight. There will be an opportunity to discuss the art work produced within the group or, if preferred, on a one-to-one basis should participants wish to do so.


  
  Bookings, Dates & Cost

Attending the course

The course will run in eight week blocks. In order to create a sense of trust and continuity, the course will be a ‘closed’ group, which means that if you are unsure whether this is for you, you can pay £20 in advance to come along for the initial session, without commitment. You will then have an opportunity to book onto the remaining seven sessions.

To encourage continuity and support, if you wish to extend your participation onto future courses, you will be offered a discounted place for £100 on subsequent blocks. Concessions are also available.
