About This Class

This art therapy course can be enjoyed by everyone and by all ages.

You don't need to be a great artist, or indeed consider yourself to be particularly creative. All you need is an imagination and an open mind to get the most from this course.

On enrolment, you will be given access to a fully supported learning experience which extends to personal support via skype and email with the course creator, Libby Seery. As previously stated, this is a bespoke service available to Udemy students only. 

The course is self paced and offers you complete flexibility. Choose to study at a time and place that suits you, safe in the knowledge that help is always at hand.

We have a section on self exploration and healing painful emotions, as well as a section for pure enjoyment and recreation. You'll also find a section on therapeutic art for family bonding.


This is great for better communication and an appreciation for each other, as you learn and create with one another.

Art can be incredibly useful for children who may have experienced bullying or trauma and can provide a safe sanctuary to share our feelings and emotions.

Art therapy can be described as being an expressive and creative, form of therapy.

The therapeutic, creative process of self expression, can improve our physical and mental health, as well as our emotional well being.

  • It helps us to manage our feelings in a more positive way
  • Can give us the confidence to address and resolve issues from the past and present
  • Increase self esteem and develop a greater self awareness

Having an outlet to express yourself freely, will encourage and promote a healthier, happier life.

Did you know that colouring-in books for adults are outselling cook books? Colouring-in for just twenty minutes a day, can bring you enormous benefits, including:

  • A more relaxed state of mind
  • Lowering stress hormones
  • Help with insomnia

Art Therapy may sound a bit daunting, especially if you believe yourself not to be particularly artistic or creative. However, this need not be an issue, as the purpose of art is simply to express, and not to judge, or compare.

Art should be an extension of how you are feeling, and for that you are your own expert.
