Creative expression plays a vital role in the development and wellbeing of young people. Our professional team, with backgrounds in Fine Art, Teaching, Art Psychotherapy, and Dance, have developed a unique interdisciplinary approach that combines creative, therapeutic, and physical activities to deliver a holistic wellbeing programme to young people.

 

The Inside Out project is a series of five 1-2 hour workshops which run weekly throughout one term, supporting young people on their journey of self-discovery and helping them navigate the challenges of adolescence with greater confidence and a stronger sense of identity. Pupils embark on an engaging journey of self reflection, using relaxation, art making and movement to explore identity, thoughts and feelings, culminating in the creation of 3D masks.

 

School can be a challenging environment for all pupils, especially for those with higher emotional and behavioural needs. The Inside Out project is designed to address the mental health and wellbeing needs of young people; an area that has a direct impact on their academic performance, development and ability to reach their full potential. 

We place a strong emphasis on creating a caring, respectful, and a non-judgmental environment where pupils can experience the positive effects of free creative expression. We believe in acknowledging each pupil’s unique abilities and strengths, providing close support when needed, and promoting individuality and diversity of expression, fostering confidence, team work and a positive sense of self.

 

Our workshops include:

 

  • Relaxation, self-care, and mindfulness

  • Exploration of various art materials

  • Mark making

  • Expressive movement

  • Art therapy techniques

  • Reflection and discussion

  • Positive affirmations
