Now in its eleventh year running, Art to Heart is offering a unique opportunity to participate in this popular programme of collective art making, personal exploration and debate. This training programme is for adults. If you are a parent, youth leader, social or health worker, teacher, child care worker or artist who wants to learn more about how to nurture, foster and develop your own creative potential, this training programme is for you.
No artistic experience is necessary to attend the programme.
At the end of the course an in-house accreditation certificate will be awarded to participants.
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.
Observing children as they engage in art activities we notice how open they are to receive what comes to them in a playful way without questioning it through the mind. In the same way, during this course the adult is asked to learn ‘to let go’. It is not about being able to ‘do art’, it is about opening up, having a go at things and being flexible.
The different themes are explored mainly through drawing, painting, clay modelling, weaving and metalwork.
