Art Walk Focus: Multicultural Perspectives & Creative Arts Therapy
The purpose of this course is two-fold. First, the class promotes an understanding and appreciation of cultural and ethnic differences among individuals, groups, and families and the impact of such differences on the theory and clinical practice of psychology. Second, the course enhances students’ abilities to apply their knowledge in the area of multicultural perspectives to their personal lives and professional work. Culture is be defined broadly to address ethnicity (including national origin), religion, gender, socioeconomic status, age, sexual orientation, and persons with disabilities.
Culture Container Final Projects
Throughout the quarter, students worked both independently and during class time on a cumulative creative project. Students selected a container or vessel of any kind (a cardboard box, a flower pot, etc.), as long as the container had an inside and an outside.
Throughout the quarter, students were encouraged to consider their personal values, attitudes, and beliefs and used words, images, figures, shapes, poetry, or any creative means to bring these to life inside the container.
In addition, students were also encouraged to explore the many implicit and explicit messages that they have received from their family, community, media, or society at large and again used words, images, figures, shapes, poetry, or any creative means to bring these to life outside the container.
Finally, students considered where these values are aligned (or congruent), and where they are in conflict (or incongruent), to creatively represent these dynamics within the sculpture.
