Art Classes for Mental Wellbeing


September 28, 2022 1 Comment

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its main mode of expression and communication.

 Art therapists/art psychotherapists use art as a medium to address emotional issues which may be confusing and distressing.

At Sreepur Village, we do not have an art therapist but we do have a resident artist, Milon, who often teaches therapeutic art in his classes as the majority of children that come to live at Sreepur have witnessed or been part of a traumatic experience.

Shahana, a 13-year-old girl living at Sreepur, created this artwork based on her own traumatic experiences.

Along with her siblings and her mother, Shahana experienced a series of violent attacks from her father.  When her father could not manage to pay off his debts or when their mother asked for food for the family or the children asked for money for education, the answer would always result in violence. 

Shahana and her siblings begged their father not to use violence but he never listened.

At Sreepur Village, as well as these art classes, we do have qualified and experienced counsellors who are on hand 24/7 to really listen to our mothers and their children, to offer advice and care and to help them look forward with hope for a brighter future.
