What does the course cover?
The course features over one hundred lectures showcasing the talents and creativity of my students who have undertaken the exercises and activities, contained in the lectures, for the purpose of producing all of the amazing artwork showcased in the course.
We’ll be looking at how to use arts therapy for the purpose of “Expressing, Accepting & Developing our Understanding of the Self” by exploring both ancient philosophers such as Plato and Socrates, as well as looking at the more modern philosophical concepts, brought to us by people such as Karl Jung and David Hume, Heinz Kohut and many more.
We’ll also be looking at using art to explore facets of our personality and covering issues surrounding introspection, social comparison and self perception.
