I enjoyed the experience of taking the time to actually sit down and be creative, a couple of relaxing hours of drawing that I wouldn't have otherwise done. However it wasn't really a learning experience for me, I don't feel I I have gained any additional skills or understand any more about art therapy and am not eager to recreate the experience again in my own time. I don't think the art mediums offered really fostered creativity there could have been things that were more expressive and out of the ordinary from what you would have lying around home.
I found the class very disappointing. I personally wanted something more then just drawing pictures for two hours. I went along as the class outline stated ....... You will also learn surprising techniques on how you can use art as a way to gain more insight into a dilemma or a problem you would like to solve. There was no information provided on this topic and it was what I was most interested in. Did the class enhance my creativity, imagination, spontaneity, curiosity and playfulness - NO it did not!
The teacher created a very comfortable and non-threatening environment that invited group members to contribute to discussion and share their personal stories. It was very informative and a great introduction to art therapy.
