What we offer
At Newcastle Art Therapy we are passionate about the power of creativity in changing and healing peoples lives. So passionate that we want to see a growing potential for effective strategies in schools, welfare and community organisations across our region and beyond.
So we studied the outcomes we were seeing with the use of creative practices across the full range of presenting demographics, educational, social and mental-health issues. We explored the challenges and desired outcomes that people already teaching, counselling and providing community support were experiencing, and we came up with some solutions to offer you.

~Staff Development Workshops
Do you want to inspire your staff with a change of pace, some fun, self-care and personal insight? Support them as people and they will make better professionals.
Or perhaps you also see the potential for growing the way your staff interface with creative practices amongst those they teach and support.
Either way, we can create the workshop to meet your needs and realise your vision.

~'Draw Me Up'- Programs for your school, community group or welfare organisation
We know you are on the frontline, already building bridges into peoples lives. You have spent many hours building a rapport with those you support and researching ways you can help them to reach more of their potential. We admire what you do and know that many of you are already stretched and stressed, trying to tick all the boxes. We would love to assist you to do your job, feeling more confident in your approach and with more resources at your fingertips.
Lets have a conversation about what you hope to achieve and explore creative ways to engage and inspire those you teach and support.
Contact us to discuss a tailor made program of resources, workshops or courses or a combination of all three.
