About this event

Eventbright Taster sessions RHA

RHA is delighted to announce a new series of Art Therapy taster sessions at RHA, facilitated by art therapist Andrea Clare Plunkett MSc.

(These taster sessions are offered at a reduced cost and have limited numbers)

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a form of therapy that uses art media to express, reflect and communicate. You do not need to have any previous experience or expertise in art to benefit from art therapy.

Who is it for?

Art Therapy can be used across the lifespan; these RHA sessions are for those over 18 years and cater for all needs or requirements.

What are the benefits?

Art therapy is founded on the belief that creative self-expression has therapeutic value for those who seek a deeper understanding of themselves and their personalities. Art therapy sessions can help a vast array of common life experiences including social or generalised anxiety, relief of stress, facilitate life transitions such as moving to a new country or adjusting to retirement, can support explorations of gender and identity and can help artists who feel they have a creative block. Most importantly art therapy sessions offer a time to stop, relax and re-focus inward.

*While these taster sessions won't have the impact of long-term art therapy they will allow you to get a sense of what a session is like.

What will I do in the online session?

Each session is 2 hours in duration.

The session will begin by meeting with Andrea and other group members and completing a consent process, this will include adherence to confidentiality guidelines.

Next, the group will look at a selected RHA artwork.

Following this, time will be allowed to create your own artwork and reflect in an open, informal, non-judgmental, safe space.

For these taster sessions you will need to supply your own art materails. Andrea will help you along the way but what you make is up to you!.

Andrea Clare Plunkett is an IACAT registered art therapist MSc trained in Ulster University, Belfast School of Art. Andrea works with groups in the RHA Gallery both online and face-to-face using an empowering client lead approach.
