Expressive Arts Institute
foundation Training Course
at Salve Regina University
The Expressive Arts Institute foundation training
is an offering from the Expressive and Creative Arts program at Salve Regina University; The Expressive & Creative Arts Program offers multiple levels of training, along with the Holistic Counseling and Holistic Leadership graduate programs.
In addition to the graduate credit programs,
a non-credit professional development course is offered each year,
called the Expressive Arts Institute (EAI) summer foundation course.
This three-weekend training course (over 3 months) has been designed to provide artists, counselors, educators and those in related fields with basic training in the
Applications of the Expressive and Creative arts.
In this multi-modal training,
Participants learn how to integrate the visual arts with movement, sound and expressive writing in order to facilitate change, healing and self-discovery in a variety of settings. Experiential learning modules with hands-on activities are combined with discussions about the applications of the expressive and creative arts as well as research supporting their efficacy.
This foundation course for Expressive Arts Facilitators
is meant to serve as an introductory
yet highly applicable learning experience,
to get a well-rounded multi-modal foundation
to our approach with the Expressive Arts.
Those students who attend our 3-weekend noncredit training course,
experience an accessible and applicable approach
to Expressive Arts as an Educational Facilitator.
It works well for professionals looking for Continuing Education studies to supplement their prior training and work experience in related fields of human services, allied health practices, and arts-based education.
The Institute program also can serve as an introduction for further study in the field of the Professional Applications of the Expressive & Creative Arts as Transformation.
The tuition for the EAI foundation training course for 2018 is $1,695.
Admission is competitive and requires a formal application.
Applications are reviewed and approved by Expressive Arts Institute faculty.
Along with the minimum requirement of a bachelor’s degree,
students must be able to fulfill the program requirements according to accepted standards of the profession as deemed essential by expressive arts faculty.
