Deeply craving #studiotime and knowing that for this week it's not happening. Realizing it's been waaaay too long since I've had a solo show but recognize the lack of time I have to properly apply. #terrified that my #artistself is shrinking. #wip #artistresidencyinmotherhood #contourdrawings

How does using an open studio model provide a different way of working with a client?
One of the first times art therapy broke my heart was when we watched the documentary The Living Museum our first semester in Naropa's AT grad program.
The studio becomes a space where the power of identity comes to light, and clients are given the opportunity to be something other than their diagnosis.
It's a place where therapeutic hierarchies and treatment plans take a back seat to artistic mentorship and self expression.
Find more on The Living Museum, located in Queens at the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center by searching online via YouTube and The NY Times.
