In the fall of 2016, the Brooks Museum partnered with the Visual and Performing Arts Department at CBU to offer an Art Therapy Field Course for undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in art therapy. The Brooks provided art therapy for two groups from Alzheimer’s and Dementia Services of Memphis (ADS), while CBU students enrolled in the course observed the adults’ experience in the Brooks’ galleries and in the studio art therapy session.
This exhibition is a result of artwork created by the art therapy participants from ADS and CBU students who learned about building connections and enhancing self-expression through art therapy groups, gallery discussions, and the creative process. *
The exhibition is on display from December 10th to March 26th, 2017.
Want to learn more about the art therapy profession? Join CBU adjunct professors Paige Scheinberg and Sarah Hamil for an information session at the Museum on January 8th. RSVP here.
