Description

VR Art Therapy Workshop

You don't need to be a great artist, or indeed consider yourself to be particularly creative. All you need is an imagination and an open mind to get the most from this VR Art Therapy course.

Within this workshop, you will find exercises on self-exploration and healing painful emotions, as well as exercises for pure enjoyment and recreation. You'll also find exercises for interpersonal communication. This is great for better communication and an appreciation for each other, as you learn and create with one another.

The therapeutic, creative process of self-expression, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

  • It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way

  • Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present

  • Increase self-esteem and develop a greater self-awareness

  • Creating art through therapeutic means provides an outlet to express yourself freely, which will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life

Did you know that doing art for just twenty minutes a day can bring you enormous benefits, including:

  • A more relaxed state of mind

  • Lowering stress hormones

  • Help with insomnia

VR Art Therapy may sound a bit daunting, especially if you believe yourself not to be particularly artistic or creative or have not had much experience (or any at all) with virtual reality. However, this need not be an issue, as the purpose of art is simply to express, and not to judge, or compare. And, we’ll show you all you need to know.

Art should be an extension of how you're feeling, and for that, you are your own expert.

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone who enjoys art, especially those 50+

  • Anyone who likes to be creative

  • The course is suitable for everyone and can be used with the whole family as a family bonding experience

  • Those people who would like to work on their self-esteem and their self-confidence

  • People who would like to express themselves better

  • Those people who would like to try active meditation using art

  • People who may be recovering from trauma or illness
