pratt.edu Environmental Art Therapy: Creating with and within public spaces to deepen individual therapeutic experience and allow for multi-dimensional human and environmental therapeutic outcomes. Participants will learn an overview of theory and application of Environmental Art Therapy. A group interactive model will be the frame from which this workshop is taught focusing on the here-and-now in an outdoor space on the Pratt/Brooklyn campus. Ideas taken from various theories of psychology (to include ecopsychology) and a general understanding of environmental art alongside eco- consciousness (to include an overview of appropriate art materials) will be applied specifically to art therapy. Participants will be able to begin contemplating how this work makes contact with their personal and/or professional selves through an increased understanding of both subjective and objective external conditions and material. Jean Davis is a New York State Licensed, Registered and Board Certified Art Therapist in private practice and the Acting Chairperson in the Creative Arts Therapy Department at Pratt Institute. She has taught aspects of Environmental Art Therapy in the department, participated in the development of the core course for Pratt’s new minor in Sustainability for undergraduate students, and has presented and published on the subject. Workshop Candidates and Requirements: Open to anyone interested in art therapy and the integration of the physical environment. Note: Please dress appropriately and bring items that you might want/need since the majority of this workshop will be held outdoors. Please bring sketchpad and pencils to document your experiences.
