Important notice: This course is run as a huge class. There are 1300 posts in the Q/A as people post there work, discuss theories, case studies, Art Therapy Exercises and then share the artwork done. If you do not like discussion and participation then this is not for you but if you like this unique approach - 60 posts a day! - and want to be part of a large 'family' then enrol.


Note: Course image submitted by a student on the course.

Much of the information, case studies and examples in this course are nowhere else on the internet. So a lot of this work (but not all) is ORIGINAL. Where appropriate, published studies are references and websites linked to.

Another real strength of this course is the degree of participation in the Q/A section as people show how they really enjoy studying on this course, posting examples etc. Questions are quickly commented on and the overall ethos is to share and learn...and enjoy...

Latest review:

"This is a phenomenal instructor and the course is exceptional. The instructor has a very soothing voice which creates a very comfortable learning environment. The way the material is presented in this class is very refreshing, authentic and inspiring. Everything is clearly laid out. This has been one of my favorite classes I've taken on Udemy so far. I highly recommend this class to anybody who would like to learn more about mindful art therapy."

- Marie Pi

This is a course unique on Udemy.

Not because of content - many courses have'therapy' as part of the curriculum. What makes this course unique is the use of films and plays - in which the Instructor acts/writes/directs - that have been shown at festivals and/or performed in London UK, Poland, Czech Republic and at fringe festivals in the UK

By the use of theatre/film we explore the use of painting and art as a whole, in dealing with depression. BUT we also look at MANY examples of Art Therapy exercises. (170+)

Main topics covered:

  • Art therapy and the Solar System

  • Depression in Children

  • Beautiful painting (a film)

  • Art and mindfulness

  • Making art

  • Looking at art

  • Paintings submitted by children have been added to the film at the end, following our request for contributors

  • Eco-therapy

  • Numerous Art Therapy exercises

  • DBT - Distress Tolerance and Prayer

  • Stress reduction

  • 31 day challenge

The content is part anecdotal - using the Instructor's experience as a theatre director and actor in films - and part based on research. Published studies are referred to, in support of the points made.

So this is a course for those who are academically interested but also those who wish to try and experience how art therapy may be used to overcome depression.

Questions and discussion are encouraged. Comments on Educational Announcements are welcome...
