What is Expressive Arts?

 

'We are all creative beings'

Maya Fiennes

 

Throughout history, people have used pictures, stories, dance and conversation as healing rituals.

Expressive arts, provides a safe, caring and accepting environment for people to choose from various art forms for stress reduction or to identify challenges/life themes and explore them further to bring about healing and transformation. The following art forms can be used in the process:

  • Dance/movement

  • Visual arts such as painting, drawing, collage, crafts

  • Imagery

  • Reflective/creative writing

  • Spontaneous play

  • Performance

In individual sessions, group classes and workshops, an invitation is offered to use some or all of the above art forms to facilitate a deeper connection to yourself. Creatively connecting to our physical bodies, our thoughts and our emotions. Each class or workshop has a specific theme and intention that we will work with using the various art mediums above. Self expression is encouraged without the need for a specific end product. The aim is not to make professional artwork, it is more about accessing your own unique creativity and the discoveries you make about yourself along the way.

'All of us contain a divine, expressive spark, a creative candle intended to light our path and that of our fellows'
