Cape Town Courses

CAPE TOWN: Art Therapy Courses & Workshops

Facilitator: Angela Rackstraw
Dates: starting February 2014

Exploring your innate creativity; creating time and space.

Are you a woman who seldom or never has time for herself, and is always intending to find and put some aside?  Are you perhaps going through major life changes?  Or would you like to re-connect to your innate creativity, in a gentle, thoughtful and supportive space?

If you need help getting started, where you will not be judged but only encouraged, then this is the group for you.  For any queries, please contact Angela Rackstraw, who will be starting two new groups in February 2014, both a morning and an evening group.

A waiting list is in progress for a mixed group, ie. including men, as these two groups will be for women only.

The morning group will meet on a Wednesday, and the evening group on a Monday. You do NOT need to be “good at art” to attend these groups, in fact, on the contrary.

Angela is a trained and registered Art therapist, and has almost 20 years’ experience of working with groups, and facilitating the creative journeys of others.  Various media will be used, and various themes will be introduced from time to time, and explored if appropriate.

Medical aid tariff is charged, and fees can be claimed from your medical aid; most (but not all) medical aids cover Art Therapy. One bursary per group is available if needed.

Please email Angela at: with any queries.  If you do not have email, please send a fax to 0866722896, or telephone 021-6839654 during office hours.

Facilitator: Samantha Davis (Registered Art Psychotherapist)
Workshop Target Audience: All adults including professionals, all therapists, executive housewives, educators, artists, mental health practitioners, parents, students and you!
