Student Reflection on Psychology and Counseling Art Opening #3


From Greta Enriquez (MA PSY)

I was very nervous sharing my artwork. For me art is so personal and the interpretative aspects of viewing art compounded my anxiety. That was before I was called on to introduce my product. Stepping up in front of my classmates was immediately calming- the support and acceptance was palpable.

I shared a small part of the process and meaning of my work, which was a reflection of my learning processes. Having the opportunity to share something as intimate and subjective as art with a community where empathy and acceptance are core virtues for students, staff and mentors, was a beautiful experience, and I am sad that I waited until my last residency to share. But I am filled with a confidence to seek out more opportunities to share this.
