“…by the artists, with love.”
This is a program of 3 non-formal education workshops about art and mental health! Confused? Let me explain a bit more…
When I say “non-formal education workshop” I mean a 2-hours-long session in which we’ll learn something through experience and later reflection about that experience. The workshops will be composed of activities like meditation, discussion and sharing of thoughts and feelings in the big group as well as in smaller groups, presentations, creation of artworks, dancing, writing, and more!
The combination of art and mental health, instead, translates into gaining basic knowledge about some specific artists and art styles, together with using it practically to express our inner selves, our feelings and thoughts. This will later open to the opportunity of learning also something new about ourselves, in a relaxed environment, and creating new connections with ourselves and the people around.
To be a bit more concrete, the artists we will approach are Henri Matisse, Jackson Pollock and Vincent Van Gogh, and the mental health topics will cover the areas of happiness, future, memory, expression of emotions, and identity.
