Keynote:The Outdoor Studio—Anything Can Happen

Conference Posters:


An outdoor studio is a place of possibility. It can inspire partnerships between adults and children with materials found within the world-at-large (in parks, community contexts, and cultural spaces). Art therapy is a way to reach out to others, to be of service, and to inspire families within everyday environments. The outdoor studio is a space for artistic discovery and ingenuity. It develops collaboration and collective imagination within family life. An outdoor studio encourages a creative alliance between family members and can serve as a vital medium of communication. Workshop participants will explore the potential of outdoor studios as places for therapeutic rejuvenation, where family members can become better known to themselves and each other.
