Introductory Lecture I: What is Art Educational Therapy?

Available for groups on request

An overview of the basic principles of art educational therapy (AET) is presented in the course. Coursework learning is integrated into art therapy in AET with the aim of facilitating emotional well-being and enhancing coursework learning. In the lecture, examples will be reviewed which provide insight into the methods and concepts of AET. The lecture is intended for everyone interested in AET, including parents and professionals who work towards facilitating emotional well-being, self-development and improving coursework learning. Previous knowledge of art therapy is recommended, for example through having attended art therapy lecture(s) and/or course(s).


“The lecture was informative, a true eye-opener. It sparked a certain kind of hope for the future of children with specific learning difficulties, a hope that their educational difficulties will be viewed from a different perspective and as a result they’ll have greater access to support.”

Rakel Eva Gunnarsdóttir, art therapist, MSc

“I think that the integration of art therapy and coursework learning, as presented in the lecture, is extremely interesting and there is much need for it in the school system. It is therefore necessary to implement this method, given that it would provide significant support for the individual, the teacher and the educational system as a whole.”

Elísabet Lorange, teacher and art therapist, MA
