About the HICAT Course:
Creative Arts Therapy is a dynamic and deeply rewarding field that harnesses the expressive arts; movement, painting, sculpture, writing, drawing, sound healing and more to facilitate healing, personal growth, and transformation.
You will be able to immediately apply art as therapy, even if you've never done art before. It's not about the artwork, it's about the process (drawing stick figure people and finger painting are completely fine).
You don't need any previous art experience or qualifications to enrol.
