This class will review varying creative means of self-care and expression through the visual arts from a spiritual and psychological perspective. The current experiences of crisis (re: the pandemics of COVID-19 and racism) raise the importance of reconsidering how we take care of ourselves.
Some of our tried and true self-care activities have been restricted due to the times we are living in and this course looks to the arts, art therapy, and the intersection of art, spirituality, and psychology as a way of fostering new ideas.
