Course Overview

ART THERAPY FOR EVERYONE

Art Therapy Course – From The Training Academy Of
Renaissance Life Therapies. Art and more importantly the creative process of producing
art, affords the creator an inner calm, builds self esteem and brings
enjoyment.  

This is true for all of us, at all stages of our lives and
dealing with the things that affect us the most, stress, mental health
conditions, disabilities etc.

ART THERAPY FOR EVERYONE

During the creative process, feelings that are deep seated
begin to emerge in a safe, relaxed atmosphere. 
This process enables us to control our anxieties, face our fears and
challenges, by producing art that expresses all these challenges.  Often just by identifying our fears, we
reduce the power they have over us.  In
some cases, creativity can be a cure for addressing eating disorders.  Hidden underlying issues surrounding eating
disorders, can simply emerge through a persons art.

Sensory stimulation provided through the use of art
materials, painting, sculpturing, drawing or creating a collage, is especially
beneficial for seniors that may have lost a little sense of self.  By participating in art therapy, using
paints, clays, collage materials, drawing etc, a here and now active stimulation
is engaged.

It is important that we express our thoughts and feelings in
some form, whether we are young, old, teenagers and so on.  There is even evidence of young children, not
yet capable of expressing themselves verbally, will grab a pencil and begin
drawing naturally.  Creativity is an unlimited
potential deep within us all, with art therapy demonstrating that perfectly.

Art therapy for everyone contains an array of exercises,
that provide lots of different ways of receiving the benefits afforded by art
therapy.  Art therapy for everyone is a self paced online course, that is
full of activities, that anyone can do. 
You don’t need to be artistic to benefit from the process of creating
art.
