Making art is a profound experience. It’s close to the soul and is a healing activity. This workshop is an art primer for therapists who want to use art techniques with clients but don’t know where to start. We’ll start at the beginning with which art supplies to buy, where to buy them, and how to keep your office clean. From there we’ll move into the basics of art materials: How to use ink, paper, canvas, paint and mixed-media to help people express things that are otherwise unsayable. You will also learn to draw in one easy lesson (you’ll have to practice some, of course, but you’ll learn a fool-proof technique). Next, we’re off to the project room with 4 projects you can do with clients--children and adults, alike. You’ll learn how these projects will improve self-awareness, intrapsychic communication, and emotional expression. Let the Magic Happen!A materials fee of $12 will be due to the instructor on the day of the workshop.
