When Art meets with Therapy – 28th – 29th April 2012 in Dublin

Ever feel like you could express yourself in other ways than words?

Well Expressive Arts Ireland  is offering you a choice of dates for a two-day workshop exploring expressive arts.

28th – 29th April 2012 in Dublin.
12th – 13th May 2012 in Galway.

This workshop will be a space to create and explore the arts in a non-judgmental environment. It is suitable for both first time applicants and past participants, featuring new exercises and theory based practices.

  •      Expressive Arts Ireland believes that healing can come through the processes of art making.
  •     Human beings are creative beings; we can shape and make our own existence.
  •     In this workshop you will be invited to use all your senses, working with movement, clay, painting, poetry, story-telling, music and sound.

We will discuss the theory of expressive arts therapy, exploring both the concepts and methodology.

Through working with the arts we gain a new perspective and access to our own resources.

A shift in our awareness can create a shift in our life.

Structure:
Each day we will have two three hour sessions divided by a lunch break. In each session we will move from one medium to another. By working across art disciplines, we access the multi-sensory potential of imagination. Each art form has a different gift to offer. It is not necessary to have any prior experience in the arts; this workshop is not about learning the skill of the medium it’s about learning the skill of the process itself.

Venue:
Dublin: The Pearse Centre, 27 Pearse Street, Dublin 2
Galway: An Seomra Yoga 2/3 Small Crane Square, Sea Road Galway City

Cost: €120 for the 2 days workshop.
(Concessions for students and unemployed)

Spaces are limited with only 14 available, so please book in advance to ensure your place at the workshop.
We will start at 10.00am and finish at 16.00pm, lunch break will be from 13.00 to 14.00.

What to bring:
Notebook, Comfortable clothes to move and for art making.

Taught by a team, comprised of graduates of the masters and CAGS (Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study) at the expressive arts program in the European Graduate School- Switzerland.
