Therapeutic Art Class Part 1
Fine Arts

How I Spent My Summer!
Laying The Ground Work For The Future.
Taking  Therapeutic Art Classes with Libby Seery, Therapeutic Art Councilor who uses these same techniques in her own practice. By taking these classes I will be prepared me to teach art and photography. Each assignment has medical, and artistic aspects to it. You learn about your emotional health, you learn art techniques, and you learn more about creativity as well. 
The best part of this program is that each assignment is interpreted by each student in their own unique way and executed with their own twist on the assignment. 
As a photographer, artist, and designer it is so freeing and has stretched my imagination, my creativity, while learning new artistic techniques. As well as accreditation with the CPD standards Agency, along with 10 hours of CPD credit.
It has been a wonderful experience to learn beside such talented and passionate artists. As we share our life stories we learn many inspiring lessons as well. It has been such a positive uplifting experience to be able to share our art in such a positive environment.
