This course is an elective credit toward Fleming College's Expressive Arts Certificate. It is not an elective credit toward Fleming College's Visual and Creative Arts Diploma (VCAD).
This course is divided into two distinct sections. One half focuses on nature-based expressive arts experiences and the other half on the labyrinth as an expressive arts modality.
Human creativity, engineering, and healthcare have all been inspired by nature. Explore this through the five senses, becoming more aware of nature's beauty and helping properties. Using nature inspired and therapeutic horticulture activities, explore the metaphoric correlation between our natural surroundings and humans. Using expressive arts modalities, reflect on these correlations and gain a deeper understanding of life situations. The labyrinth's circular shape and winding path have significant application as a metaphor for wholeness and health. A safe container and a meditative tool, the labyrinth can be used to calm the mind, increase focus and concentration, explore and reconcile relationships, overcome blocks and stuck patterns in daily life, increase pleasure and satisfaction, align body, mind and spirit, recognize and connect with emotions, and induce feelings of clarity and contentment. It can also boost creativity, imagination and appreciation of play. Learn to integrate and adapt labyrinth practices into expressive art programs and deepen understanding of the role of nurturing self-awareness and self-care practices as facilitators.
