Multimodal Expressive Arts Seminars

 

At the fall 2014 residency, we explored Deborah Koff-Chapin’s practice, Touch Drawing.  We improvised and repurposed available surfaces (cafeteria trays, and cardboard covered with sheets of adhesive vinyl) as well as sheets of plexiglass. The surfaces were coated with oil paint, covered with newsprint and then we drew – from the unconscious using our hands and fingers.

Expressive Arts Reflection From Nirodha Stearns (MA PSY '14)

Nirodha Stearns graduated from the MA in Psychology and Counseling program in March, 2014. Here is his reflection on his expressive arts project:

"I completed fifteen "Soul Cards" spanning personal experiences over my lifetime as well as more recent work with individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders usually manifesting in substance abuse. They are a collage mostly of photographs I had taken.

Reflection from Graduating Student Mushkan DeFilippo

 

This collage represents my vision of the woman I have become through my time at Goddard, and, thanks to my life experiences over those years, how I see myself as a therapist.

I chose the image of The Birth of Venus by Botticelli, partially because I am Italian and also as a symbol of birth of my own feminine qualities. Her nudity is unapologetic. She wears a crown that symbolizes her being the queen of her life, and fully embracing her power and presence.
