Hey there. So, we don’t necessarily have a program for art therapy, but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t create one. The way the Plan Process works, I could see you combining psychology and visual arts to work with art therapy. Read more about the Plan here.
Also, Liam answered a similar question about music therapy a few days ago, and I think his answer was pretty good, so you should check that out here.
Courtenay ‘13 responds: “对。他们都是本宁顿的大学生.”
(She is participating in nearby Middlebury College’s summer language program, in which all participants sign an oath to only communicate in their language of study for the duration of the program).
According to Google Translate, that Mandarin equates (more or less) to a ‘yes.’ Hope that helps!
I AM NOT AN ART STUDENT, and the answer to this also differs for every studio and piece of equipment, but my impression is this.
You need to in someway demonstrate that you have the proper knowledge and skills to be safe in a space and not break anything. This usually happens by taking an intro class in something, but you can sometimes get around it. After that, you can sometimes use spaces when you are not in a class, but preference for time and materials always go to students who need the space for credit.
As far as your second question, that is totally at the discretion of the professor. In general I would say most are pretty open but have the following concerns: if you have to leave in the middle of a class will it disrupt it, and is the classroom environment in some way a safe space that will develop through the mutual sharing of work and thought, and will an outsider be detrimental to that? If neither of those are the case, I think most professors would be fine with it.
I was gonna run over to Usdan Gallery to take pictures of ceramics stuff from this year’s senior show, but alas, it has closed for the summer. I did some digging, though, and found a handful of visual arts works from the past couple of years. Pictured above is (what I’m pretty sure is) Genevieve ‘11’s work in last year’s Senior Show.
You can find more photos of student work, including some more ceramics stuff here!
Last night was the opening reception for the Senior Show, which lives in the Usdan Gallery until the end of the term. The works the seniors who have been working in Visual Arts showed are inspiring and beautiful. It is great to see the culmination of work from friends and classmates.
Check it out when you get a chance, if you’re on campus. Below is a selection of some of my favorite works from the show.

Trying to help my friend construct a sculpture earlier this month pushed me into foreign territory. I found myself wishing that I knew more about physics. It didn’t help when I looked around and saw this:
A creation by Chendru Starkloff who is using his understanding of physics and tapping in to professors here to make some really interesting work.
The assignment for the Intro to Sculpture class was to create a sculpture that captures a movement you do everyday. His action: mounting his bike.
