This course is an introduction to Working With Children and Adults Through Arts and it is based on the belief that, when given the right environment, children instinctively know how to create while most adults need to re-learn how to do it.

Course content:
How We Experience the World – The Senses, the Elements and the Natural Cycles
The Layers of a Tale – Story painting, storytelling, and story making
Rhythms, Cycles and Crafts – The importance of crafts, taking time and the natural rhythms
The Temperaments – The four temperaments and how to work with them
The Healing Power of Art – How Creativity Heals

The training course has been developed and will be led by Jole Bortoli the director of Art to Heart. Jole has extensive experience in working with children and adults through the arts. She has designed workshops for adults that are specifically designed at developing their confidence when working creatively with children or adults. She focuses first on allowing each adult to be creative, individually and with others.
