AT 549  Dollmaking: The Therapeutic Use of Creative Process and Symbolic Imagery with Children and Adolescents

This workshop will involve students’ creation of their own soft-bodied dolls, using a variety of materials and tools, including limited use of a sewing machine. Through creating one’s own doll, it is hoped that a deeper understanding of both the therapeutic value of the creative process and the symbolic significance of the final product will be reached. This experiential project will be put in context of art therapy theory and practice related to the use of media, the doll as a container for therapeutic concerns, and questions that may surface before embarking on such a process with young clients. Pass/No Pass grading not available. Cross-listed as AT 449  for undergraduate credit and as AT 049  for continuing education. 1 cr.
