A free 8-week Art Therapy Course for Women

This course is designed for women who have a desire to take part in a social life after a prolonged time of isolation or loneliness. Whether you have lost social confidence due to circumstances (such as illness, unemployment, bereavement, etc), or whether you go about your daily grind, but suffer a lack of meaningful connection to other people, this course is for you.

Through drawing, painting, collaging, and other creative activities we will playfully build confidence and connection within the group. We can safely explore what hinders you to reach out, experiment with new ways of being among others, gain inspiration and courage. Most importantly, this is an opportunity to experience healthy and caring community by sharing stories, laughter and tears.

No prior art experience required!

Tuesdays 9.30am – 12.30pm, 6 Aug – 24 Sept 2019

at Toi Pōneke, Abel Smith Street, Wellington

In our lives we are often busy and over-stimulated by vast amounts of information. It is easy to lose touch with the simplicity and depth of our being and nature.

This course offers a gentle yet profound reconnect with ourselves and the world. Mindfully and with the use of creative media such as paint, crayons, clay, and nature objects, we will tune in and activate our senses. There will be elements of meditation, gentle movement, philosophical musings, and heartfelt sharing in a safe and supportive group environment.
