Over the years, I have set up Expressive Arts groups and programs in both private as well as County facilities. In order to do this in some cases, I created ways for therapists to take the arts on the road if visiting foster families, or when I had to travel from facility to facility creating art groups. As a result, I have created and re-created over and over again 'THE ART BOX'. It is a large box that contains all the art supplies you will need to do any art project wherever you go.
Within THE ART BOX there is: paint, brushes, markers, pencils, oil and chalk pastels. There are several types of papers, and various 3 dimensional art making items such as, beads, feathers, stencils, pipe cleaners, ribbon & yarn and masks. With THE ART BOX I have created a manual which is a guide to using the Expressive Arts with your clients and detailed group and individual exercises.
I am now offering a consulting package to people who would like to add the arts to their business. Yes, for therapists, of course, but much more. Many creative people have added the arts to their existing businesses. Workshop facilitators, music teachers, and more. I will train you on how to incorporate the arts and be available for phone and email consultation going forward.
If you would like to know more about using the arts in your current business, please email me at ExpressiveArts@yvettelyonsphd.com
