Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art making to enhance emotional wellbeing. You don't need to be artistic, just willing to give it a go. Art therapy differs from traditional art making in that the focus is not on the final artwork's aesthetic appeal. Rather, with art therapy the emphasis is on the process of creating, developing and reflecting on meanings held within the artwork. Art therapy assists to improve insight, process experiences, and resolve inner conflicts. This helps to develop a more integrated sense of self with increased self awareness, self acceptance, and personal growth. The facilitators each hold a Master of Art Therapy, and as professionally qualified arts therapists they are registered with the Australian and New Zealand Association of Arts Therapists (ANZATA). The Weekend is being held on Saturday 30 August from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday 31 August from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.
