July 2019: Gestalt Art Seminar

Fra et af vores seminarer - her gælder det Gestalt Art Teraphy med Yaro Starak som kurusleder.

From the 2015 seminar, also with Yaro Starak as leader.



Yaro Starak has explored this topic for over eight years now and found that the Gestalt community everywhere does not have a curriculum where the Gestalt Art approach is integrated into the Gestalt therapy practice. Of course, bits and pieces of drama, drawing, and other so called artistic elements are added to a session with a training group. Yet, a specific training in the use of art tools in gestalt work is not available everywhere. In this workshop Yaro work together with Gemma Garcia, Gestalt therapist and Visual artist, with whom he founded the Gestalt Art Therapy centre in Australia.

Fritz Perls was excited to incorporate dramatists and body workers in his workshops, of which many have become well known in their artistic work. At this time, the art aspect in training students is not sufficiently in focus, and the experiential aspects of Gestalt is losing its important place.

At this GIS week workshop, we will introduce the skills and tools of Gestalt Art Therapy.


  • To enable trained gestalt therapists, attain creative tools of practice in their work.
  • To offer an art focused Gestalt workshop at Orø


The workshop will offer some theoretical principles with extensive practical elements and experiential group processes using Art materials as tools to enhance therapy with clients.


During the introduction to ART Therapy, there will be many art materials used (see the program) each “tool” will be explained and practiced with a volunteer client and also we will use the group process work to demonstrate the healing medium in art. The art materials are negotiated as to availability.
