Art Therapy Workshop (21 April 2018)

Date: 21 April 2018 (Saturday)

Time: 10am – 1pm

Venue: Artisan Space Concept (9 King Albert Park #02-06 KAP, Singapore 598332)

Course fee: S$80 per person

Summary:

Art therapy is a creative process of improving one’s physical, mental and emotional well-being through art – crafting, doodling and painting. The idea of self-exploration is foreign as many skim through life trying to check all the boxes. The endless to-do list hinders our journey to dig deep into our inner emotions.

Through this workshop, you will be guided in the followings by an experienced art therapist to explore feelings and emotions through your own art creation:

– Recognize, understand and manage your underlying emotions and feelings

– Express yourself without any communication barrier through arts

– Find self-help skills

– Find out what your true emotional needs are

Art-making helps participants to improve relationship without losing the focus of individuality. It is especially effective for those who face difficulty in expressing their thoughts and feelings verbally. Using individual’s art creation, the art therapist will provide insightful conclusions and reveal certain aspects of oneself that you knew existed. In return, you will be more confident of your capabilities and are more aware of areas that you need to work on.

This workshop is suitable for:

– Individual

– Couple

– Parent and Child

If you have attended any art therapy workshop in the past and would like to work on more in-depth art project this time, please notify us beforehand. Our art therapist will tailor the workshop according to every participant’s needs.

About the Facilitator:

Lisa pursued her education in Art Centre College of Design in United States (Environmental Design) and ESMOD & Centre de Formation de Modalism in France (Fashion Design and Mannequin Patternmaking). During her internship with Romeo Gigli, she assisted the team in preparing fashion shows for one of the brands. Lisa was Inaba Shigeko’s right-hand man. Then, Inaba was a designer and the right-hand man of Jean-Paul Gaultier in those days that he created his own fashion labels. Lisa also worked as pattern maker and quality control specialist for other reputable fashion brands like Georges Rech, Christopher Lemaire and Morgan de Toi.

After spending many years in the fashion industry, she decided to venture on her own as an art teacher and therapist. During these 15 years, she set up her own art studio with the objective of helping others to uncover their emotional needs through arts. She strongly believes in using art as an avenue to understand one psychologically and emotionally with visual work and several art materials. Many individuals have sought her for art therapy. She guided them to discover their inner feelings and emotions through their own art creation.

At the corporate level, she has conducted art therapy workshops for organizations like Sony Ericsson, Abdael Surabaya (architectural design consulting firm), Yayasan Galuh (mental rehabilitation centre), Surya University and a military based camp in Sorong Papua to improve the mental wellbeing of the members and employees. During these workshops, Lisa guided them to discover their underlying emotions through analysing their brushstrokes, colours and symbols of their painting.

She has spent her entire youth working in the French fashion industry. She left the fashion industry to follow her heart on embarking a journey as an art teacher and therapist. She enjoys her job and finds it self-fulfilling.

Emotional Freedom Level One (January to February 2018)

As parents, we give our time, love, experience, guidance, wisdom and material support. We provide our children with food, clothing, shelter and education. We do – and even think – for our children. We want them to be happy, successful, independent and morally upright. We protect them from failure, disappointment, hurt and pain. We are willing to go to great lengths to fulfil our parenting goal. We put in tremendous effort, try and try, sacrifice and never give up.

Our aches, pain, stress and hopelessness come from our desire to do the best for our children. In the course of it, we find ourselves in the web of bewilderment when the relationship falls apart. Children are displaying behaviour that is not intended by parents. “What do we do as parents?”; “What is wrong with our children?”

The heart of parenting is emotions and feelings support. During this workshop, parents can pick up principles and skills to equip them with methods, strategies, and communication skills to provide such support.

Participants will be guided to raise: 
1. Emotional awareness.
2. Skills & effectiveness in compassionate speaking
3. Skills in creating feelings of love, trust, understanding and respect.

Benefits for Individuals:
1. Develop emotional self, social and workplace management.
2. Build strong and meaningful relationship with loved ones, friends and co-workers.
3. Increase well being, success and happiness.

Benefits for Parents (with children of all ages):
1. Develop our children’s emotional intelligence.
2. Establish meaningful relationship with our children.
3. Build children’s resilient, self-direction and self-efficiency.
4. Raise children’s well being, success and happiness.

Couples in relationship
1. To develop a more meaningful and profound life together.

About the facilitator:

Happily married with 4 grown up sons in a cohesive and close-knit family.

About the Facilitator

Heather Ho, the founder of The Violet Oracle have embarked on this spiritual journey to be able to assist more people in their life purpose. It was through a trip to Nepal in 2003 that she discovered her psychic abilities. It was a life-changing trip that witnessed an awakening of psychic abilities from previous lifetimes, and spiritual opportunities and synchronicity were natural progressions thereafter.

She works as a clairvoyant who tunes in to her clients’ energy to receive oracles such as visions, messages and symbols. She picks up the challenges or emotions of her clients and their situations. She could work with their past and present issues and work with the potential future. She seeks to address her clients’ issues directly so they would not leave the consultation unfulfilled. Besides harnessing her natural psychic abilities, she also combines numerology and tarot in her work as numbers and symbols are some of the many ways the Universe communicates with us.

You would understand why some people behave in a certain way and how to better manage and improve your relationship with them. And why you gravitate towards a certain group of people. Being empowered with this insightful knowledge allows you to manage your clientele or understand your loved ones better. And there are so much more!

– The Intricacy & Paradox of Numbers
– True Life Path & its Flow

A common hearsay is as time goes by, a couple will grow to learn how to love one another and understand each other better. However, without proper communication and deep understanding between one another, miscommunication can still be the downfall of a relationship.

This workshop has been designed to enable couples to better understand and encourage the sharing of each other’s perceptions towards their partners. This will not only benefit young couples, but also couples going onto the next stage of the relationship – marriage, where they have to work even closely together as a team.

About the Workshop

All parents have only one thing in mind, which is to provide the best for their children till adulthood. Even before the child was born, they are already planning the best kindergarten to send them to and to buy the most beneficial toys and books. However, they often overlook the true essence of growing up – is the child happy? How do they know that the ‘best’ is the best for their child?

Whether they are searching for answers for the physical or the psychological; parents yearn for positive constructive remedies to solve their child’s discomforts. The ultimate goal of this 3 hours parent-child dyad art therapy is to help the parent acquire the ability to interact with their child in a playful, imaginative, and non-intrusive manner, thereby strengthening the attachment between the two.
