Holy moley, it's been awhile since I did a blog post. In case you missed my post about it, I started graduate school at the end of August. It's been a whirlwind non-stop awesome ride. I'm learning an incredible amount about art therapy and meeting some awesome people interested in the same stuff. Basically, I'm learning that all these things I've been spouting off about here about art being a powerful tool for healing is true. But I'm also learning about the psychological theories behind the powerful healing tool. I'm also learning how music, movement (dance), play, and other expressive arts can be used WITH art to heal.
This is powerful stuff.
Honestly, I'm sitting in a place of extreme gratitude that I'm able to now devote my life to this thing called art therapy. My past has given me a lot of tools to use with what I'm learning but I'm also seeing how I can use those tools in my future.
Oh, part of my course work is art. So that's awesome. I'm going to try and get better about the blog again. I've got lots of school related things- pen reviews, paper reviews, and new art materials that I want to review here.
