More About Our Courses


All of our online art therapy courses have been created in such a way, that wherever you are in your art therapy journey, you’ll find each of our art therapy courses, both invaluable and beneficial.

So if you’re an individual just starting your art therapy journey, exploring the therapeutic process afforded by simply creating art for the purpose of self-healing, or whether you’re well into your art journey as part of your career, then all of our courses are tailored for you. Health care professionals will find the techniques used very beneficial and helpful in supporting others in a self-development / therapeutic role.

Art therapy is appearing more and more everyday, being adopted and used in an array of different settings, by people from all over the world and in different contexts, for example:


  •         Facilitating art groups in hospitals
  •         Working with ex-offenders
  •         Supporting addiction recovery
  •         Supporting children and adults with additional needs
  •         Working with dementia patients
  •         Facilitating mental health services


The focus of all our courses is very much centred around the therapeutic process that’s afforded from creating art. This means you don’t have to be an art therapist to use the tools and techniques provided by each of our courses. It’s the creative process itself that’s most beneficial, rather than training to analyse artwork.

The activities and exercises used within each of our art therapy courses are appropriate for all levels. You’ll learn how to apply these exercises for your personal growth, self-healing, self exploration and self awareness, and be able to use them within group settings and while working with individuals.

Even if you consider yourself not to be particularly artistic or if you haven’t picked up a crayon, pencil or a paint brush in years, it really doesn’t matter.

To get the most from our online art therapy courses, all that’s needed is an internet connection. All our courses are compatible with desktops/laptops, tablets and phones. Best of all, you can choose a time and a place to study that suits you.
