HEALING THROUGH ART DISCUSSION PANEL ART GALLERY
The EKU SAFE Grant and the Department of Psychology sponsored a discussion panel, "Healing Through Art" on March 27, 2019 in honor of the new Art Therapy Certificate Program. Panelist discussants included members of different departments across campus and community artists as well. Panelists described how art making (through poetry, storytelling, photography, painting, mixed media, and use of fabrics) was therapeutic to themselves and others. They also discussed how different types of art can be used to convey messages of hope, healing, inspiration, and reconciliation.
