In recent years, we have seen an increase of artistic training and activities in our leisure and free time—and more demand for them, too. Therefore, there are growing numbers of therapeutic spaces and institutions in which the visual arts are the primary focus. The effectiveness of art therapy has been proven through processes in socio-education intervention and personal improvement.
Artistic activities not only develop personal skills like creativity; they also use perception, self-knowledge, self-motivation and resilience as tools to provide satisfaction and personal improvement. Every single person, without exception, can benefit greatly from them.
Our Art Therapy course provides its students with all of the conceptual, methodological and practical elements that allow them to design and execute art therapy workshops, focusing on the huge potential that visual arts activities have for socio-education and personal development.
