Workshops and Education

I have had the immense pleasure of presenting a number of workshop - both educational and therapeutic. Working with staff and in within communities to promote Art Therapy and encourage feelings of empowerment and well-being.

To commission a workshop don't hesitate to contact me on nina@courageousart.co.uk

Topic of the Month - Saint Francis Hospice Staff CPD

Delivery of a workshop to approx 20 members of staff on
'What is Art Therapy?'

• Purpose of the Learning Forum
• Sharing innovative projects and best practice
• Opportunity to showcase the work of individual departments to the wider hospice audience. The Learning Forum is a Hospice wide forum, not just applicable to the clinical departments.
• Opportunity to learn from each other
• Opportunity to better appreciate and value the work going on within the hospice and beyond.


 

“It was lovely to learn about the background of Art Therapy but also to learn about how it applies in practice. Your style of teaching is very warm and the stories/examples that you integrated were a perfect illustration of the power and importance of your work …. we all felt safe.


The session was emotional, safe and so expressive. The art work and emotion that was elicited in such a shot time was great. So, not only was it about the power of art therapy itself, it was also about your great skills as teacher and facilitator.


A great session. I could’ve stayed there a lot longer.” ~ B.M - Head of Education. Saint Francis Hospice.

Mono print workshop - Newham Show

Responding to a call out for artists I was selected as part of a group of 4 to deliver a drop in artist workshop to approx 150 members of the community at a local festival in Newham.

The aim was to encourage connection and facilitate a creative language through a mono print workshop suitable for all ages. Also, encouraging transferable skills for parents to facilitate at home with their children or engage further in their own creative process to support their mental health.

Also encouraged the use of found objects and materials to use as printing tools. The prints were made on either fabric or paper to create patterns and images that helped to explore the diversity of the audience.
