Art Therapy Workshops
Visit the new Art Therapy Workshops, in partnership with the Birmingham Centre for Arts Therapies (BCAT), to learn how art therapy can benefit children and adults who are experiencing behavioral, emotional or mental health difficulties. Autistic visitors on Saturday can take part in taster therapy sessions.
Through Art Therapy, individuals can gain a better understanding of “self” and learn how to recognise and manage feelings such as anger, fear and anxiety. There is no need to be good at art to take art therapy, as everybody can use colours, lines and other materials in their own ways.
The Art Therapy Workshop is run by Darron Hama, a qualified Art Therapist registered with HCPC (Health & Care Professions Council). Darron completed his MA Art Psychotherapy training in 2015 at the University of Chester. Prior to becoming an art therapist he studied contemporary art and practiced it for several years. He works as a freelance Art Therapist with the Birmingham Center for Arts Therapies (BCAT).
Everyone has the ability to respond to the arts in many ways. Sometimes the arts provide a different perspective in which to respond to difficulties. BCAT allows people the chance to explore these difficulties, no matter what they may be, in a safe environment with a registered therapist who has been trained to offer support or encouragement.
Workshops will be running on Friday and Saturday at: 11.00, 12.00, 13.00, 14.00 and 15.00.
