The Psych: Art, Artists & Mental Health

Art Show, Art Talk, Drawings/Works on Paper, Gallery, Mixed Media, Multimedia, Painting, Photography

This is an exhibition of original works created by students in the Art Health Studio class at Central Piedmont Community College. The studio course is designed to encourage and/or support individuals who have concerns which limit their ability to express their creative interest in the visual arts. It is well established that the arts can demonstrate therapeutic impact on many conditions. What is offered here is not intended or represented to be art therapy; although through the use of traditional methods, some may experience therapeutic outcomes after participating in the studio. Throughout this experience, students had the opportunity to use a range of media: graphite, colored pencil, watercolor, marker, and other materials to create the works you see exhibited. The theme and subject matter of these works are original concepts done by the artists. 100% of the proceeds of all works sold go directly to the artists.
