The Expressive Arts abound during Residency in the Psychology and Counseling Program. There are Expressive Arts workshops, the sharing of students’ Creative Theses and Capstone work at our Poster Session, student led open studio times, and informal jam sessions.
Our Expressive Arts Opening is a very important event. In our Haybarn Art Gallery, students present works they have made as a component of their coursework during the semester and as the meet the requirements for the Expressive Arts Therapy Concentration. Students often create Expressive Arts projects as they reflect on the theories and research they have studied or as they reflect on the experience of their Clinical Internship work. With appropriate permission, they share the Expressive Arts work they have done with their clients.
Here I share an Art Opening performance by a student formed band, “The Swing Sets”
Each Residency we create a catalog of students’ Expressive Arts projects. I share it with you here:
