Have you ever wondered what art therapy is and how it works? This one-day workshop provides a 'taster' experience of art therapy processes. Focusing on your own art-practice, you will experience the potential of art-making as a tool for personal growth, connectedness and self-awareness. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about art therapy processes and how art therapy may apply in various health settings.

Extend your knowledge with the two-day Introduction to Art Therapy workshop which offers a more in-depth experience of art therapy theory and processes (no pre-requisites required). Both one and two-day courses suit people from varied backgrounds and professional practice, including prospective students of the Master of Art Therapy.
