In our "Art With Heart Club", we are using art therapeutic techniques on relaxation and deeper understanding of own personality. Through the work with metaphorical cards, crafts and painting members of the club understand better inner fears, resources and self image. Moreover, we help them to increase their self-esteem and perceive adequately own self-image.
