What is the course about?

The Cork Art Therapy Summer School welcomes up to sixty participants annually, providing them with a unique opportunity to learn about and experience the Art Therapy process. Visiting art therapists, from Ireland and further afield, facilitate an immersive experience of the Art Therapy process over the five days.

What you will be doing?

Participants are offered the chance to explore the therapeutic potential of art through a series of themed experiential workshops. A series of related lectures and seminars during the week provide a context for the current practice of art therapy.
