Google+ Art in the Park - Cork City: Louise Foott

Louise Foott

"Having trained as an art teacher without ever wanting to work in mainstream education, I returned to my hometown to explore the idea of art therapy as a career. I began working as a community artist and discovered a whole way of working I’d never known about and enjoyed it too much to go on and train as an art therapist. These days I train people to work in this area; artists who are looking for group work skills, social workers that are looking for art skills and a whole spectrum of individuals in between."

Louise is currently acting as an Arts-based Facilitator Trainer & Lecturer at Cork Institute of Technology.
