Healing Art Class

Who is the class for?

We have designed this class for anyone. Creating art gives people a chance to slow down and explore. It can improve the mental health of people dealing with addictions, anxiety, attention disorders, grief, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, trauma, relationship issues, and much more. Artistic ability or talent is not required to participate in the class. People of all ages, including children, teens, and adults, can benefit from it, but the recommended minimum age is 8.

Why should you take the class?

The class can be used to complement mental health improvement. Creating art can help people acknowledge and recognize feelings that have been lurking in their subconscious. The process gives a sense of self-accomplishment which can be valuable in improving self-appreciation and confidence. The most significant benefit is having a healthy outlet for expressing feelings and fears. Complex emotions such as sadness or anger sometimes cannot be expressed with words.

Class Summary

The main objective is learning ways to use different mediums to discover possible creative outlets. Clients will explore various types of art, including collage, doodling, drawing, painting, and working with clay. They will create finished products like a traditional art class, focusing on the inner experience. Then analyze what they have made and how it makes them feel. People can look for themes and conflicts affecting their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The classes are weekly one-hour sessions for six weeks. We meet on Thursday evenings at 6:00 PM in the downstairs conference room of the Liberty Hall building.

This course provides methods and tools for using the creative process to help people manage behaviors, process feelings, reduce stress and anxiety, and increase self-esteem.

From Dr. Fabing: Scott and Bridget Peeler are perfect instructors for this class. Their calm demeanor and temperaments help students process. I met Bridget at a homeschool meeting and saw her talent.
