Arts For Life School Programme, module 1.

Implement the 6 week Art Intervention programme in your school!

The Arts For Life programme has been developed for P5 – S6 pupils with a wide range of needs and abilities, enabling therapeutic art techniques to become part of their tools for life. The programme is best suited on a 1 to 1 basis or within a small group setting. No previous art experience is needed, the CPD accredited 2 day training is filled with experiential learning as well as the theory behind the methods. The 3 compulsory follow up sessions ensure full implementation of the AFL programme in your school.

What will I gain?
The 2 day training and 3 follow up 1 to 1 sessions with you, to ensure the appropriate implementation of the 6 week programme. The 6 week programme handbook, tailored implementation process and £60 worth of specialist anthroposophical art therapy materials.

The 6 week programme enables children and young people to express their emotions in a positive way, through non verbal art techniques.

During this two day training participants will be invited to use art techniques which enable expressing emotions in a safe manner through non verbal techniques in art intervention. The participant will engage in the programme, through theory and practise. The programme consists of 6 art techniques, which have been carefully considered to stimulate the following learning:

– Aknowledging feelings

– Understanding that feelings are individual

– Verbalising emotions through actions

– Understanding how behaviour impacts others around you

– Verbalising triggers

– Self-regulating emotions

Our programme has been created over 13 years of experience within ASN education and a degree in anthroposophical art therapy. Over 43 schools and organisations across Scotland have used our techniques and implemented our programme.

After completing this course the staff member will be able to use the 6 week programme and implement it in your school. Please note, the programme is only to be delivered by participants of this Apply Your Arts training- it is not to be used to skill share. This is not a ‘train the trainer’ event.

General admission: £390

This includes a specialist pack of materials worth £60, all hand outs, Apply Your Arts 6 weeks programme planner and tea/coffee with sweet on the day.
