The Therapeutic Art Facilitator and Life Coach Certification program will take you through how to develop a practice you can use teaching groups or coaching individuals through the use therapeutic and expressive art.  Therapeutic art is not art therapy as there is not a goal of intention to create a very specified treatment plan.  Therapeutic and expressive arts are process oriented not technique oriented like art school.  You will, however, in these well designed courses we taught with the basic art making skills and elements that you need to have as reference for yourself and for others.  In Zen Drawing and Mark Making you'll explore elements of line, repetition and pattern. You'll learn basic printmaking methods in mixed media courses as well as how to use multiple layers and processes from acrylic washes, paper bleeds, pen and ink, texturizing, etc.  You'll be led in activities that will teach you how to intuitively use these tools and techniques to create what you are wanting to express from an authentic process as well as learn how to facilitate groups and individual sessions.  We'll also take you through how to work with self discovery and difficult emotions that may come up including how to make a referral to an appropriate therapist.

 

The courses for developing a personal practice are all daily practice courses but they are self paced, so if you get behind, you just pick up where you left off and you decide when they fit into your schedule.  This is often helpful with busy lifestyles and if you want to focus more in depth on one specific method as you are exposed to them.  The 21 day practice courses lessons are short with the emphasis on your practice of the technique being taught. Practice logs are required.  The art courses in this program all focus on mindfulness and therapeutic practices incorporated with the act of creating spontaneous, intuitive art. 

The following course list is the list of the courses for the entire program.  You are welcome to work on one at a time, which is recommended for the developing practice courses, or on several at a time.
