Being Both: An Integrated Model of Art Therapy and Alternative Art Education
Albert, Rachel
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v27 n2 p90-95 2010
This viewpoint proposes a model of art therapy integrated into an alternative art education program. Because of the pressure to meet educational standards, school systems may be less likely to support clinical programs that take students out of their classes. A blended model of art therapy and art education that utilizes effective strategies from both disciplines and provides students with a therapeutic process can support instruction, empower students, and produce art products the students can be proud to have created.
