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!
