Process Art Facilitation
Reflective art sessions
Lee Smit-Gardner offers individual or small group facilitated process art sessions. This is a gentle, facilitated, and non-judgemental process that uses very specific art media to allow the opportunity for the subconscious thoughts and feelings to become visible for you so that you can reflect on them. No artistic ability is required and although the art techniques worked with do improve artistic skill, the processing through art is the focus rather than the product. Courses run for 12 sessions.
