This intervention is implemented in three phases which last two weeks each over a period of approximately 12 months.
Clinical art therapy sessions are facilitated either for individuals or groups for a minimum of 8 weekly arts therapy sessions but is extendable upon recommendation of the arts therapist.
CORPORATE ARTS THERAPY
At The Red Pencil, we offer Corporate Arts Therapy that will be of value to the wellbeing of both the employees and the organisation.
Taking care of employees’ wellness not only helps reduce work-related stress and absenteeism, but also boosts workplace productivity.
COLLABORATION WITH GLOBAL NGO's
The Red Pencil believes in collaboration with local community-based NGOs, as well as large international humanitarian organisations, to plan and deliver interventions that are rooted in the local context, based on real needs, and are culturally sensitive.
This model is used in situations where beneficiaries require a more sustained level of care, with sessions held once or several times a week over a period of 3 to 6 months.
Anyone can experience the power and benefits of art therapy in a 1.5 hour workshop.
COMMUNITY & AWARENESS EVENTS
The Red Pencil promotes art as a way of self-care and mental wellness. Our presence at museums, schools, art fairs, and community service events are aimed at promoting arts and wellbeing, reaching out to the local community.
MASTER’S IN ARTS THERAPY SCHOLARSHIPS
Every year, The Red Pencil provides scholarships for those who wish to obtain a Master’s Degree in Art Therapy at Lasalle College of Arts in Singapore.
After they graduate, our scholars are expected to go on humanitarian missions or volunteer at local programmes and workshops.
All of the Red Pencil missions – collaborations with international organisations, 3-step humanitarian missions, residencies, clinical sessions and workshops – follow the same 7-step operating procedure. This framework ensures consistency in the way we collaborate with our partners and our impact measurement standards.
In its commitment to bring the best of arts therapy to everyone and to communicate openly, The Red Pencil will share feedback on supervision of the arts therapists, on challenges and lessons learnt, with its partners and donors through its reports and newsletters
