The Art of Student Teaching Exhibition

Author: Anonymous

Each year, the Art Education Department presents exhibitions of work done by student teachers and their pupils for display at the Stella Elkins Gallery. This year, four student teachers displayed the products of their time at a variety of schools as community members gathered in fellowship to appreciate the art made by friends and loved ones. Wendy Osterweil, the supervising professor of this group of students, was one of the Tyler officials present for this installation. “What’s unique about this show is that it’s a rather small group. Each student put a lot of time into this exhibition, and it shows.” The student teachers exhibiting were Brooke Mulroy, Madeline Willis, Maria Chambers, and Anna Capriotti. 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

Art Therapy Comes to Tyler

Author: Anonymous

There’s a new major coming to Tyler that many have been excited for over the past few years! In Fall 2017, Art Therapy came to campus as a new Bachelor of Arts degree. With a new major comes a lot of questions, so I took the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Lisa Kay, one of the advocates for Art Therapy as a major at Temple. Dr. Kay, along with many others, has been working on the creation of this major for some time now and was happy to answer some of the questions that I had about the major. “The major came about over a long period of time,” Dr. Kay stated. “We started to have conversations in 2013. Getting a new degree through bureaucratic channels took quite some time. Tyler Admissions fielded emails from students interested in the degree for a long time, with the Foundations Department and Visual Studies program also keeping tabs on interest from students. We moved forward after establishing that there was interest amongst the student body.” Read More
