This year-long course, taught once a month over 7 Saturdays, will provide further grounding to the art therapy student and practitioner in studio work. Students will have the opportunity to develop their knowledge of materials and artistic processes while developing a deepening familiarity with personal imagery and symbolism. Traditional and non-traditional media and art-directives will be explored. This course will be beneficial to students and practitioners looking to engage with the art therapy process over a longer time span than normally afforded by the week-long intensives. Creative arts practitioners and artists from the community will regularly be invited to share their work. ( Graduate 3 Credits, St. Stephen’s College)
