Recently, first-year MPS Art Therapy students in the Methods & Materials class created sculptures from discarded objects and recycled materials brought from home or found in the street. These items were repurposed into something new and unexpected, which could be symbolic of life circumstances.
Students discovered that transforming unwanted items into a unique art piece could be a metaphor for the recovery process. The sculptures mirrored parts of the self that may not be as valued but should be reflected upon and understood.
