Happy New Year...

The most recent issue of Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association features a number of features by SAIC faculty and alumni.  In this special issue on ethics (volume 28, issue 4, 2011) you will find articles by alumni Christopher Belkofer and Barbara "Basia" Mosinski and faculty members Pat Allen and Randy Vick.  In addition, the cover art is by alumni Robert Caswell.  If you are not a subscriber (and why not?), check out these and other features at http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/uart20/current.


 Art of Connection 

The show continues for a few more weeks so, if you have not seen it yet, there is still time.  This exhibit showcases artwork by students graduating from the Master of Arts in Art Therapy program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the people they work with at their internship sites.

There was a very nice article in the Chicago Tribune featuring work from the exhibit.

How does your knowledge and art therapy practice inform and influence your own art practice?
My art practice is informed 100% by my education in art therapy along with my experiences working as an art therapist. As many artists throughout history have been interested in portraying the human condition through their work, I use my psychology background to inspire the way I depict this theme. This inquisitiveness into and knowledge of the human condition I learned while earning my masters at 
The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, combined with the formal training I received in painting, 
drawing, printmaking, and art history at the Rhode Island School of Design forms the foundation of how I explore and express ideas.
