Community Mental Health/AOD students and mosaics

Every year 1st and 3rd year students study BA Community Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs (Chisholm Institute, Melbourne) learn a range of art skills and practices that they can take with them into the community.

They learn to stretch their imaginations, and come up with projects that are creative, enjoyable and most of all engaging – for the makers and the viewers.  They learn the difference between art making and art therapy, how artists think and work, and why art is such a powerful tool for recovery.

All these mosaics – self portraits, art works on discarded computer monitors are on display in the Berwick Campus Library; the chairs went home with students.
