SITE Course 5 (core)

Survey of SafeArt Healing Arts Tools, i.e. PLAY!


In SafeArt, we work in five broad categories of expression, often mixing them to create multi-disciplinary pieces: Dance/Movement; Visual Arts; Drama; Music; Writing.  


Mindfulness and Centering is a category unto itself, which draws from these basic disciplines.


We have a treasure chest of icebreakers and introductory explorations that are also a blending of media. None of them require advanced skills and all are adaptable to a diversity of ages and abilities.


We will play in this course, trying out many of SafeArt’s tools and then creating some new ones. One course requirement will be the design and group facilitation of your own Mini-lesson in any media you choose.
