This is not an art therapy class, or an art class; however, it uses artistic imagery and can be most therapeutic and life changing. Through the use of art, couples can uncover body image issues, develop greater comfort and acceptance of their own and each other’s bodies, and learn more about their partner.
The first session begins with participants doing a full-body portrait of themselves and their partner. The second session focuses on expressing a body part which the participant appreciates on themselves, and an appreciated body part of their partner; the third on sexual anatomy; and the fourth, on their ideal sexual self.
Each session will end with facilitated sharing by clinical sexologist, Martha Lee. Participants who wish to contribute their digital photographs and/or artistic work anonymously towards a future art exhibition may do so.
I like to encourage couples to come to this session with an open mind, with the knowledge that the other participants are just like yourselves–desiring to uncover any body image issues and with the confidence that this will be a safe and supportive group.
