Led by Sarah Parker – Art Therapist
Monday 13 th November 2023 1-4pm


Learn about the value of using art activities to support the emotional wellbeing of children, young
people and adults. Explore how art can be used to help soothe and relax in this busy world we live in.
The workshop will allow participants to learn about art activities that they can then use with those
they support.
This training will include…
• An experiential workshop leading you through exercises designed to soothe and relax.
• Exercises involving art making, breathing techniques, and using the senses.
• Group discussion and exploration of how these exercises would work in your setting.
• Using art materials of your choosing.
For this workshop, you will need…
• An environment that is quiet and private to create a relaxing and safe environment where
people feel free to share their experiences. This may be easier to find in your home.
• Space to make art on and some basic art materials like coloured pencils, pastels, crayons or
anything else you would like to use. Plus, some paper to draw on
• Some items that you find soft and soothing. For example, wool or soft fabrics, bubble wrap,
pipe cleaners, clay, feathers, pebbles or shells.

Please note that this workshop is ONLINE using Zoom. Joining
instructions will be sent out via email following booking confirmation.
