The graduating students of the class of 2012 presented their theses on Friday, April 20, at the National Arts Club. For our students, the writing and presentation of the thesis project culminates two years of theoretical study and clinical application of art therapy. Nineteen students investigated topics including “The Video Camera as a Witness to the Life Review of a Dying Man,” by Katie Fitzsimmons, and “Art-Making as Self Care for Art Therapists Working with Inpatient Psychiatric Populations,” by Alexandra Caminiti.
Students, family and members of the public gathered to learn about the research our students conducted during their time at School of Visual Arts. A reception followed to celebrate their accomplishments. Congratulations to the class of 2012!
