The role of colour in art therapy will be examined by Jennie Tanser, Art Therapist at Camphill Medical Practice
, at a free talk in Aberdeen on Tuesday (March 29) evening.
During her talk, Jennie Tanser will give examples of how colour can be used in her therapy sessions.
“We take colour for granted,” Jennie (above) explains. “I want to make people more conscious of colour, how it affects us and how it can be used to interact with people through art therapy.”
Her talk “Colour in Art Therapy” is at 7.30pm in the Newton Dee Café on Old Ferry Road, Bieldside, Aberdeen.
