About the instructor

Hello my name is Anike Kehinde and I have a bachelor's degree in Art Therapy-Creative Therapies since 2010.

My art therapy background

After my studies I have worked in psychiatric hospitals and a pediatric center where I supported children, adolescents and adults through the use of Art therapy activities.

The therapeutic individual- or group sessions usually involved topics such as self healing, exploring their feelings and thoughts, improving self esteem, social communication skills and much more.

What impacted my Art Therapy work the most

My work as an art therapist was impacted the most by a two year project in an orphanage in the carribbean where I successfully launched Art Therapy in a school. There I helped children and teenagers in exploring and experimenting social skills and expressing thoughts and emotions through art and clay therapy.

Present

Currently I am studying to become a certified Health and Nutrition Coach because I believe that our nutrition also has a huge influence on our well being.


Certificate for Personal Development and Self Healing through Art ( Beginner )

At the end of the course you will get a certificate of completion when you have finished all the modules.



<<<<<What this course is NOT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This is NOT an Art Tutorial.

I am not offering explanations of art techniques for you to become an artist. It is an inspiring course that offers Art Therapy exercises and insights into Art as Therapy to guide you during your creative process .

Furthermore it aims to inspire you to improve your self care and work on your personal development.

Following the course is not the same as being in an art therapy session. Art Therapy is always face to face with a professional. My course "Personal Development and Self Healing through Art (Beginner) course" shows you how to use art as expressive tool at home. It also introduces Art Therapy to you and hopefully inspires you to look up a professional art therapist in your area to take part in a live session.

ATTENTION:

+ Qualities of Materials for therapeutic Art- What To Use
6 lectures 16:25

The Module Qualities of  Materials for therapeutic Art describes the properties of popular materials and gives you an understanding why a material offers more structure or control while another offers you a sensory experience and allows you access to your emotions

Personal Development and Self Healing through Art / Beginner

Preview 01:31

Here I list two groups of materials. The first group consists of popular materials that have a rather controlling and structuring nature, and that at the same time allow low physical contact. Those are also materials that are less likely to arouse your emotions. The second group that I am talking about in this lecture concentrates on popular materials that we can control less. They offer less structure, but therefore enable a  deeper connection to our emotions. They enable sensory experiences such as touch, smell, observe and are more connected to the subconscious.
