Tree Of Me – Course Outline

The ‘Tree Of Me’ Art Therapy online course, presented by Art Therapist & Founder of Empowered Art Therapy and Kindred Art Space, Kerryn Knight enables you to gain a greater understanding of yourself, your challenges, resilience and things you wish to grow towards through creative, expressive processes.

The tree and its many parts symbolise you and your many parts.  Your history and roots, the face you share to the world, your inner self and where you are ‘growing to’. As we draw to the close of 2020 we will look at what your tree wishes to compost and what you wish to flourish in 2021.

How does Art Therapy work?

Art Therapy focusses on the process of creating rather than an art outcome.  Therefore, it is not about creating a ‘masterpiece’, nor it is creating something that is aesthetically pleasing.  Rather it is about the process of expressing emotion and by doing so becoming more aware of our body felt sense and the wisdom it holds.  The art created has a two-fold effect.  On one hand, it acts as a release of emotion.  On the other hand, the art acts as a visual representation of that emotion of which the art-maker can dialogue with and gain further self-awareness.
