VCUarts Qatar launches new art therapy course

If you’re interested in art therapy, you’ll be keen to enroll for VCUarts Qatar’s new Foundation in Art Therapy programme.

This course, the only one of its kind in the region, is perfect for anyone looking to get into art therapy.

You will have the opportunity to learn about the practise and its implementation with different client groups and populations.

The course will take place from March 29 to April 9 at VCUarts Qatar and tutors, who are experienced local and international art psychotherapists, will be presenting clinical work from their own art therapy practices.

The course will be a combination of theory and practice, and will incorporate an experiential component with group discussions.

The programme instructor is VCUarts Qatar alumna Sara Powell, the founder of ATIC, a psychological and counselling centre. She has an MA in Art Psychotherapy from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore.

She is a registered member of the professional association for Creative Arts therapists in Australia, New Zealand and Asia (ANZACATA).

Powell has over nine years of clinical experience and has provided art therapy to children, adolescents, adults, families, and has facilitated a variety of groups.

Foundation in Art Therapy is a British Association of Art Therapy (BAAT) accredited course.

This could be your new career.
