Healing Art Class

Who is the class for?

The class is designed for anyone who feels overwhelmed or pressured by everyday life. Creating art gives people a chance to slow down and explore any issues they may be having. 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 traditional mental health treatment. Creating art can help people acknowledge and recognize feelings that have been lurking in their subconscious. The process gives a feeling of self-accomplishment which can be very valuable in improving self-appreciation and confidence. The greatest 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

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, but the focus is on the inner experience. The main objective is learning ways to use different mediums to discover possible creative outlets. Then analyze what they have made and how it makes them feel. People can look for themes and conflicts that may be affecting their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. The classes are weekly one-hour sessions for six weeks. We meet on Thursday evenings at 6:00PM in the 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.
