Art AcCeSs – From art Therapy to AcCeSs to education

Project number: 2023-1-RO01-KA210-VET-000167250

Art ACCESS – From ART therapy to ACCESS to education is an Erasmus+ cooperative partnership that aims to create a new approach to teaching learning when working with children diagnosed with CES using art therapy methods. The project is implemented by the FDP Association – Protagonists in education, Romania, and Accorde Emeraude, France.

The project, financed by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ program, will take place between 04.12.2023 – 03.06.2025 and aims to raise awareness of the importance of creating a school environment where children with special educational needs (SEN) are supported and well accompanied both in the learning process and in the process of social inclusion. For this to happen, teachers and parents must cooperate for the well-being of children, and teachers must have the appropriate skills and knowledge to help children integrate and perform according to their abilities and learning pace.

Art AcCEss aims to transmit the theoretical, symbolic and practical bases of co-creative art therapy so that it can be used to accompany children with CES and their parents and also to conduct sessions with the beneficiaries in order to create a framework for observation and then application practices. The topics covered during the training will revolve around two axes: accompanying trauma and caring for psychological wounds; and strengthening self-esteem and human qualities.

The project started with a training program dedicated to the FDP team, made up of 8 specialists (educators, psychologists, social workers). Over several weeks, participants will deepen the fundamental concepts of art therapy and gain practical skills to use in working with children with special educational needs (SEN) and their families.

The training takes place in modules, including both theoretical sessions and practical workshops. Upon completion of the program, the FDP team will be prepared to successfully implement art therapy in working with children at the WONDER Center.

Later, similar training programs will be organized for 40 teachers from 10 schools in Bucharest. Thus, a coherent and effective approach to art therapy will be ensured throughout the project.
