ART 240 GU - Introduction to Art Therapy

Minimum Credit(s) Awarded: 3
Maximum Credit(s) Awarded: 3

This course introduces students to the rapidly expanding field of art therapy with emphasis on the breadth and scope of its practice both in the United States and globally. Art therapists practice in a wide range of settings and with people of all ages and backgrounds–such as hospitals, schools, treatment programs for adolescents, nursing homes, mental health clinics, and juvenile detention centers and prisons and mobilize to respond to disasters at the international level. Classroom lecture and discussion are integrated with direct, hands-on experience with art media and the creative process. Students will explore expressive therapy approaches to personal growth and development while they are introduced to issues regarding practice in the helping professions. No special skills or abilities with art media are required.
