Art therapy classes
Art therapy is a form of therapeutic work supporting the process of learning about oneself and self-acceptance, helping to deal with one’s own emotions. It gives the possibility of symbolic expression of difficult experiences, experiencing emotions in safe conditions, in the form of speaking ‘not directly’.
We encourage you to develop your artistic skills. Handmade fancy vases, avant-garde dishes or delicate cups will delight everyone with their unique form and original shape.
