Expressive Art Course

Expressive Art Course

Understand yourself and others through art

Have you ever felt that language cannot express feelings, thoughts or moods? It may be that their meaning is richer, more delicate and poetic than language; perhaps learning the language of images, like an artist's creation, can make them appear!

Artistic creation does not only refer to the expensive artworks seen in art galleries. Artistic creation can be like building a small fortress with sand, drawing a painting with only straight lines, drawing a happy smiling face... etc. You can feel a sense of satisfaction in the face. Expressive art is a cross-disciplinary art category. Creators can add their sensory experience to their imagination and present them through different artistic media (including visual art, music, dance, drama, and creative text, etc.) to express themselves through their thoughts and feelings.

Students feedback

  • Learning to play art can be so easy!
  • In the process, I tried a lot of different materials, and I especially liked the flow of water to play.
  • The therapist kindly encourages us to express ourselves more~
  • In the process, I discovered that Duo Zuo himself has a lot of important things, and both the wild can't remember Zuo and return to the meaning of life.
  • I can tell my own story, it turns out that others also resonate.

Adult Expressive Art Course

Do you know yourself? Do you find your position in society?

Psychology at the age of 20-40 is the most rapid stage of change, which is full of challenges and confusion. We have come to a "Great Leap Forward" in our studies, work, and interpersonal relationships, and many branches of life are formed here. Welcome to create together, prepare a good guide and reflection time for yourself, use art to look back and find our own needs, we can learn how to deal with ourselves and love ourselves and the people around us😀

Note: This course is not a "psychotherapy" course for the relationship between medical and disease, but the healing component of understanding oneself and others through art, which is caused by being listened to or resonating. If necessary, please look for qualified help professionals (such as therapists, psychologists, counselors, etc.) for inquiries.
