敘事繪畫治療法基礎課程簡介

Style of Learning

Theory, experiential learning, live demonstration, hands-on practice

Introduction

Do you believe that the pictures we draw reveal our happiness, aspirations, worries, and anxiety? Is it really that magical? Indeed it is true that the pictures we draw reflect our inner worlds. Nowadays, many people complain about having problems with interpersonal relationships, which are often caused by deficiencies in communication. We often rely on language as basis of communication, but very often language itself can become an obstacle in communication and understanding. By utilizing the techniques introduced in the FNDI course (formerly known as Foundation Course of Projective Drawing), our subconscious thoughts will become apparent through our artwork and narratives.
