Children's Expressive Art Creation Course X Amber CHAN

An art class that accompanies the growth of children to create on-site experience

Artistic creation does not only refer to expensive artworks seen in art galleries. Artistic creation can be a small fortress built with sand, somehow I want to draw a painting with only straight lines, draw a happy smile....Wait, you can feel 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. Thoughts and feelings.

Course instructor Amber CHAN designs different artistic creation content, so that everyone can devote themselves to creation and display their creativity, and will lead participants to share their works together. Amber CHAN is currently an accredited professional member of the International Expression Art Therapy Association (IEATA) and a qualified practicing expression art therapist.

Children Expressive Art Course

In the past year, children have mostly stayed at home due to the impact of the epidemic, and most of them are unilaterally accepting knowledge in class, lacking real learning experience and opportunities to contact others, which hinders social development. The therapist will lead the children to make artistic creations at home in this 4-class activity, so that the children learn how to be creative, and they will also guide them to learn to share and appreciate each other

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.
