Testimonial from workshop participant 

"I really enjoyed every part of the session.

Using different art tools and methods in just one day was amazing. It was cool that we got to try out different ways of doing art therapy.

Even though none of us knew each other before, I could feel a real connection between us during the session. It felt genuine.

I'm hoping I can get into the Master's course to learn more about Art Therapy. I want to explore this field further."
