Tyler Carnival Succeeds Yet Again

Author: Kylie Doyle

With the school year coming to an end, students have been looking for ways to unwind and celebrate completed projects, finished finals and for some, graduation. The Tyler Carnival returned for another year of entertainment and refreshments the day after classes ended. Inflatable rides, free carnival food, and games were amongst some of the amenities provided for students to enjoy. The event was staged in the Tyler Courtyard to compliment the beautiful change in weather before summer heats up. As usual, turnout was high, making for another successful (and crowded) year for this popular student event. Whether you’re here to enjoy companionship, rest, or an inflatable game, there’s something for everyone at the Tyler Carnival. Students deserve time to relax during the stress of finals, and seeing the camaraderie and high spirits is a great pick-me-up regardless of how the end of the year unfolds. Read More

Rachel Brandoff Art Therapy Talk

Author: Michael Smaczylo

Recently, Tyler's Art Education and Community Arts Practices department held a discussion and presentation given by Dr. Rachel Brandoff about art therapy with families in crisis and trauma. Rachel is the coordinator of Art Therapy Specialization and Community and Trauma Counseling at Jefferson University. We were surprised to hear that trauma is  “not the exception, it’s the norm.” After an informative talk about how art therapists work with people who have experienced  trauma, we did little art activity with Dr. Brandoff’s favorite art material – pipe cleaners. We were instructed to focus on one personal goal, could be big or small, and the second part, we have to focus on a larger community goal and how our personal goal could connect to that. Some people connected their personal goals, and others linked them to a bigger sculpture. Make sure you’re following us so you don’t miss out on other events like this!   Read More
