My Art Therapy workshops at Czech and Slovak School of Sydney
Art therapy is powerful form of expressing our emotional being. This therapy uses the creative process of making art to improve a person's physical, mental and also emotional stability. The creative process can help people to resolve issues, manage their behaviours and feelings, reduce stress, and improve awareness.
The most important thing is to make contact with the child as a basic presumption or the success of the art therapeutic process. Art therapy is on the border between psychology, art and the science of art. Art therapy is very beautiful, always very emotional and often also painful. It is necessary that art therapist is responsible and humble. Exercises can reveal a serious problem too then the therapist has to deal with it and possibly discuss what he found in his work with a psychologist.
Art therapy takes advantage of the fact that it is necessary to show the fantasy, imagination, subconscious patterns whether intentionally or unintentionally. This enhances physical, mental and emotional well-being uncovering human qualities, motivations, hidden opinions and pain.
Art Therapy - Mandala 'Touch heals'
SOME WORDS ABOUT THIS PROJECT
These Art Therapy workshops in Sydney's beaches are a special occasion to heal our inner pains and bringing a healing and unity for all of us. They support us to be open minded, step back and look at the things from different perspective. In this Art Therapy sessions I guide kids and adults in a process of creating a beautiful large mandalas by their hands. Background in this idea emerged in my soul from my previous Art Therapy workshops. I see the healing effects on people and in a movements and effort to do something for themselves and others. As we are creating any art it takes our attention from everyday life, from past and future and leave us in the present moment of the creation. This huge mandalas look different from birds eye view and that's why bringing different perspectives to people.'We owe it to ourselves to live our best life every day because we are only living in brief moments in time. Soon all of this will be forgotten. As we are polluting the planet we are destroying ourselves as well.How we can touch each other we can touch the land as well because it is not only a piece of the ground but a beautiful planet which makes us all still alive...and how the bomb can hurt the land, our touch can heal it too. Everything we are creating is like a message to the world as we are evolving and care for others we want to share our gained wisdom so they can see our reality, our perspective.
All of those who are not satisfied with their lives, numbing the world down are also sharing their message, gained wisdom but it is destructive for the world, it's painful. Instead of the fights, wars, hatred they should spend their energy to make movements of enlightenment. We know that they also want to be seen, admired, loved. We know...but their creation and expression looks like a boredom or maybe they feel unloved... but if they would 'touch' all what they destroyed they could finally feel how they probably always wanted to feel: loved...by the world.Those who would walk around this mandala would never see the whole image..the magic...because to see things from above, it is to see them from the different perspective. How I was drawing into the sand I was thinking about the life, about people be kinder, don't hurt others, don't destroy each other that is why the meaning of this mandala relates to unity and love for all people living in this world.'
