Thursday Morning Art Group (Adults)
Zines and Journaling
- 300 Australian dollars$300
- Online via Zoom
Cost: $450 Duration: 6 sessions, 1.5 hours per session Participants: 6 participants per group Art Materials: whatever you have! Pens, pencils, textas, printer paper. If you have watercolours or paints you can use them too. Participants will create art responses during each session to compile into a “Zine” or journal. This will help participants establish a visual arts practice which they can maintain both to explore issues that are impacting them on a daily basis and use to further develop their ideas for artworks. The focus of these sessions is guided learning through self-expression to build resilience, self-confidence and self-esteem through art activities. Sessions are experiential rather than product focussed. Each session will involve participants building a stronger sense of self through discussing positive strategies for improved mental health. Discussion will be followed by an exploration of how visual artists have expressed related concepts and an art making activity in which participants express their personal response. Sessions will be facilitated by a master’s qualified and registered Art Therapist and Educator. For more details about the program please contact Vashti Taverner.
