The Expressive Arts Institute at Salve Regina University, which is celebrating 20 years of successfully implementing a holistic approach into the training of skilled professionals, is accepting applications for its foundation course being offered in three 3-day-weekend sessions from May 20-22 to July 8-10; and Aug. 12-14.

This introductory training course is designed to provide artists, counselors, educators and those in related fields with basic training in the applications of the expressive and creative arts. Participants will 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 professional settings.

The foundation course 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, explains Christopher Carbone, program coordinator. The Institute foundation also can serve as an introduction for further study in the field of the Professional Applications of the Expressive & Creative Arts as Transformation.

{Editor’s Note: Christopher Carbone will join me on The Open Forum on WADK 1540 AM on Monday, May 16th at 1:30 p.m. to discuss this program and opportunity.}

As acceptance into the program is limited, those interested are urged to contact Christopher Carbone at or (401) 341-3122.
