Ecology in Art Therapy



Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork

MA Art Therapy Seminar

Making a Scene in Public

Information for Participants

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

Workshop Themes 

Art Therapy Out of Bounds, Social Environments, Land Art, Choreography of Space, The Artistry of Location, Enactments, Habitats
