Workshops for Community Groups
The following workshops are open to anyone and are ten days in duration, which can be spread over a ten week period or longer if required.

Workshops facilitated at Art Therapy Works are limited to minimum of four and a maximum of six participants. Larger groups can be facilitated in community or corporate settings.

Exploring Creativity"Art Therapy Group"
The aim of this introductory workshop is to deliver an art therapy programme which will encourage individuals to use the arts as a vehicle for personal development, self expression, developing new skills and techniques in using the arts. Each workshop will engage participants in using the full range of art materials, such as paint, collage, clay, dry materials and mud-rock to explore aspects of the "self" within a therapeutic context. This will encompass personal issues, self identity and community identity.

Family Album"Life Journey through the Family Album"
This workshop aims to encourage individuals to explore their own family albums or the absence of one, as stimulus for psychological and emotional healing. Participants will look at the journeys made by themselves and their loved ones and reflect on their memories and the constant flow of life, looking at their gains, losses, happiest and most painful moments within a therapeutic context.

Using the full range of art materials including photography and collage, participants will explore aspects of individual, family and community identity in order to create individual life size portraits.



Wizard Of Oz"Coming Home - Using the Wisdom of Oz"
The workshop will encourage participants to make a journey of 'home coming' to the 'self' which will encompass personal issues, self identity within the family and the wider community. Working in a therapeutic context, participants will be given the opportunity to use a wide range of art materials, puppets, sandplay, music and story telling to find expression for their journey back to the "self" and reflect on their journey so far, reclaiming and retelling their personal discoveries through the metaphor of the 'The Wisdom of Oz' which is based on the story - 'The Wizard of Oz'.
