Record Album Design in Methods & Materials Class

Recently, first-year MPS Art Therapy students created album covers in their Methods & Materials class. Decisions around genre, theme, and messages they wished to convey were considered. Witnessing the development of original music tracks and cover artwork depicting a personal story was truly inspiring. Participants discovered that this intervention addresses communication, self-awareness, memories, decision making, impulse control, and emotional expression. Tracklists can foster the exploration of themes such as racial injustice, bullying, future goals, addiction, recovery, and other meaningful life experiences. Consideration of populations and sites that might benefit from this experience followed the artmaking experience.
