Ecology in Art Therapy



Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork

MA Art Therapy Seminar

This workshop investigated the creation of land art within the nature of public spaces. Working with found and natural materials, in outdoor studio areas, artworks related to both personal and collective themes. Therapeutic situations were encountered en route through the examination of outdoor habitats. There was a consideration of how art therapy could be choreographed through spontaneous relations with the environment. Artworks were both site specific and transportable, assembling ingredients of location in an attempt to enact the energies of participants and the character of place.
