What are Arts Psychology classes?
A tutored art class without your child feeling they are in a therapy session.
A trained art tutor facilitator, who has technical drawing, painting and teaching skills, plus training in the basic theory of psychology understanding how the brain grows and develops in the home environment. Using technical drawing and painting skills in a step by step process as the primary mode of communication within a classroom setting
Discover a new approach we use to help your child with their emotions.
As adults, we know what we need to release stress, anxiety or how to find a way to work through our current uncomfortable situations.
Children are still trying to learn how to understand their emotions we face as adult’s on a daily basis.
Introducing arts psychology into your child’s life help’s you discover:
- How their brain thinks and copes with life experiences
- The reason they feel anxiety or stress and how do deal with it
- New techniques in skilled drawing and painting which allow your child not to feel pressured to speak about their feelings
- Why children do not fully engage in ‘therapies’ or other counselling techniques
- The reason children learn how to deal with their emotions by watching how their parents react in similar situations
- New support techniques for parents to gently guide their children without blaming themselves
Within four classes we clearly assess where your child is requiring support from their parents.
We can show parents how they are already creating the space for their children to feel safe through their technical drawing and paintings created. If parents are willing to work with us as a team, the assessment report provides guidelines and support how to change current behaviour.
Some of the children we have worked with will have experienced:
- Signs of depression
- Eating disorders
- Reactive behaviour
- Special needs
- Grief, bereavement
- Communication problems
- Stress related issues from school
- Pressures of school
- Sibling rivalry
- Problems with emotional/social development at school
- Studying ‘retaining information’
- Surrounded by mental and physical abuse
- Surrounded by indulgent behaviour (example alcohol/drug abuse/neglect)
- Affects after cultural differences
If you are concerned for your child to be within a group, please contact the college for more information.
Why do we use technical drawing and painting skills?
Technical drawing and painting has a step-by-step process to achieve an end result (a finished picture).
How your child deals with the steps to achieve their finished art pieces as well as handle the challenges to create their art work demonstrates how the facilitator needs to give more support or to step away.
The tutor is qualified in drawing and painting skills which shows the student that no matter what they do, they will have someone to help them work through to the end piece of artwork in their personal high standard.
The child’s brain starts to process and find a way to achieve an end piece of artwork that they are happy with. On a subconscious level, their thinking pattern visualising successfully achieving the steps filters into their life and how they deal with their emotions.
