Using a blend of mindfulness and therapeutic art techniques, this course will help you reduce stress and anxiety and develop new habits to reduce negative patterns of thinking and behaviour. You will finish this course with improved self-esteem, increased self-awareness and a reduction in negative thoughts and behaviours - your own self-care backpack!
This course is an integration of Therapeutic Art techniques blended with principles of Mindfulness, combining the freedom of drawing, painting and making collage with different media and a meditation practice that connects body, mind, and soul in a creative way. We provide a safe place for people to restore, align and empower themselves in order to become a strong individual with a life purpose. Each session provides an alternative perspective of how to express thoughts, feelings, and conflicts for those who find verbal expression difficult. This will improve both mental and physical health, reducing stress and anxiety and help to develop new habits that will weaken negative patterns of thinking and behaviour.
All materials are provided.
Anyone can enjoy the benefits of creating art. No knowledge or prior skills surrounding art is required to start. This course will be particularly applicable to these groups:
I really enjoyed the course. It was something I looked forward to every Tuesday - a really nice way to end my day in a state of peace/calm - and being mindful. Additionally, I am no artist but it was nice to be in a space where I was able to express and create freely... never being forced to do something a certain way or follow rules/guidelines. I guess that was the whole point of this course. 2022
The facilitator was really good at providing a supportive relaxed environment for expressing yourself through art. It was very accepting group to be part of. 2022
I absolutely loved the meditative art course, it was exactly how I was hoping it was going to be- meditation and art combined. 2022
I think the course is great value for money and well worth keeping on the schedule. I hope that many other people find as much value from Dinny’s classes as I did! 2022
