Drawing and Talking Foundation Course
 

Drawing and Talking is a safe, easy to learn method of working with pupils, in both primary and secondary schools, to help with underlying emotional difficulties that may be affecting their learning and behaviour. The core of the method is encouraging pupils to draw with a person with whom they feel comfortable, regularly, at the same time each week, and this person asking some non-intrusive questions about the pupil’s drawings.  Over time, a symbolic resolution is found to old conflicts, old trauma is healed, and the pupil is more able to control their behaviour and better able to access the curriculum.

Course details

  • Drawing for Mindfulness is a practical session aimed at class teachers
  • It aims to encourage wellbeing through art with a shift in emphasis from art being for ‘talented artist’, towards it being a tool for ALL students to engage in to increase mindfulness.
  • The activities given will be delivered as a discipline-not hungry for fixed, measured outcomes, but one seeking open ended and fluid experiences in the present-powerful, meditative and reflective state.
