The Art of Casework, Running Deer CIC

Having joined the team at Running Deer within the last few months and seeing the variety of external experiences and knowledge each individual staff member brings, I wanted to focus on some of my personal and professional background in Art and try to incorporate that into my role as a case worker.

The Art of Casework

I have always believed in the therapeutic value behind creativity and the important role it can play in self expression.

As part of the ” Colourful Science day” we made a spin art device that used centrifugal force to spread paint across a round canvas, it was educational and also looked awesome!

Another project, still in its early stages, will involve one of the students shadowing me and participating in a graffiti mural workshop then writing a report on it as part of their project based learning. Watch this space!
