We are not foreign to the term “art therapy”, but to what extent do we truly understand it? What type of individuals would require a art therapy course? What type of methods are used during an art therapy course?

 

We experience varying levels of stress in our daily lives. Due to the inability to release this stress or to mange our stress levels and emotions, individuals may encounter psychological issues and distress caused by stressful situations, such as insomnia, depression, social withdrawal, anxiety and emotional instability. These problems may manifest across all age groups, with some adolescents and children exhibiting issues like autism, phobias, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In cases where the problems are not severe, art therapy courses can play a therapeutic role in their treatment.

Art therapy course, as a form of healing, utilises art mediums for the use of art and the action and process of doing art for relaxation, treatment and relieve. In the process of art therapy course, individuals may gain a better understanding of themselves and unpack emotions, be able to interpret their psychological issues, deepen the understanding of human nature, and assist in evoking patients’ individual emotions. Art therapy courses helps to uncover psychological issues and provide effective treatment and relief for patients and individuals facing such problems.

As shared by the renowned Swiss psychologist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung (1875-1961), artistic creations serve as a manifestation of the human subconscious. Due to art’s unique expressive nature, the creative process allows the patient to express their feelings and potential suppressed emotions. Art therapy hence encourages patients to focus on their inner experiences and perceptions rather than external references or pictures.

Art therapy course is the perfect combination of art and psychology. It utilises various visual art materials and mediums such as painting, handicrafts, clay, sculpture and collage.

Why use art for therapy? 

Early civilisation recorded their lives using drawings, and only later developed spoken language. When we narrate something, the visual scenario first appears in our minds before being expressed in words. Similarly, when we listen to someone describing something, the scenario appears is first processed in our head before we respond. Art Therapy course  in Singapore aims to reduce mental stress by finding your outlet through art expression, with the goal of Healing your heART with ART therapy course!

The process of art creation involves both the right and left brain, and it is the expression of both our conscious and subconscious thoughts. Art can bring forth subconscious information that may have been overlooked, allowing for heightened self-awareness and even resolving some internal conflicts, facilitating self-discovery.

Art therapy course and art education share some similarities as both use a large range of art mediums, however, art therapy’s aim is not the mastery of art techniques, but rather to use of abstract images to portray one’s feelings. As art therapy does not focus on creating a perfect, polished final work, it is not subjected to art critique by the art instructors.
