To ensure the highest standards in art therapy education are met, and often exceeded, all facilitators are chosen carefully and trained thoroughly to be able to facilitate the most creative art therapy programs in South Africa.
Why Include Families in Our Art Therapy Courses?
Families form the foundation of a child’s upbringing and welfare. This is why it is important for families to not only encourage children to actively participate but also to support the children as well. Art therapy helps improve a child’s relationship with family members. If families understand how children express themselves through art they get an indication of how they express themselves socially.
The Different Mediums for Artistic Expression
Art therapy allows both children and adults to engage with different types of materials and mediums. The three most common types used by the Palette and Paintbrush are paint, clay and textiles. Working with paint inspires creative thinking and design. It stimulates the areas in the mind that non-expressive exercises can’t and thereby help the child to develop into a more balanced and well rounded individual.
The Art Therapist's Lesson Objective
Art therapists give guidance and teach new techniques to children to help them expand their creative thought process. By helping the children develop their skills, the art therapists also find out how children respond to different treatments. Art as therapy with children strives to create a working environment and an accepting atmosphere in which the children can feel safe, comfortable and emotionally secure. Art therapists want the experience to be exploratory, to be unthreatening and, above all, fun.
