CARTH 3423 Materials as Metaphors in Art Therapy

Materials used in art therapy will be explored through examining the work of contemporary artists and art therapists, engaging in art making, and examining applications in art therapy practice. The social context of work with materials is examined, and both traditional and innovative materials and processes will be discussed and explored. Students will gain fluency with the materials that serve as a “language” for art therapy practice and will be able to apply this understanding in internship settings.
