Beginning the NewCourtland Project

In addition to helping Kay with her studio work this summer, we will also be assisting her with the NewCourtland Project. The project is held at NewCourtland's Germantown Home, a community for senior citizens. It allows us to work with the residents twice a week and help them with artistic projects. 

As a student working on earning a concentration in Art Therapy, this experience is going to be extremely valuable for me. This will be my first hands-on experience with something related to the field of Art Therapy, so I am very excited to work with the residents!!

Today, we went to the Germantown Home for "Sensitivity Training." The training was one-hour and reviewed proper conduct when working with the senior residents. It involved a Power Point presentation and some role playing to better understand some of the disabilities that the residents may have.

So, I put on some glasses with masking tape on them (to make vision difficult), grabbed a quad cane, and was instructed to try to walk down the hall and back. It was challenging and gave me a good perspective on what a lot of the residents are coping with.
