Popular Combat Paper workshop returns to Herron School of Art and Design

  • March 9, 2016


INDIANAPOLIS -- Herron School of Art and Design's art therapy program is bringing artist/papermaker Drew Cameron back to the IUPUI campus this month to conduct his internationally successful Combat Paper workshop, where veterans -- or anyone touched by war -- turn uniforms or other cloth into paper and then use the paper to make works of art.

The workshop takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday, March 22, and Thursday, March 24, at the Eskenazi Fine Arts Center, 1410 Indiana Ave., on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus. Participants should bring their own brown-bag lunch for the break from noon to 1:30 p.m.

Workshop attendance is free, but reservations are required. To register, contact Juliet King, director of the art therapy program, at kingjul@iupui.edu or 317-278-5466 by March 16.

In conjunction with the workshop, an exhibition of Combat Paper artworks opens with a reception and artist's talk by Cameron at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 23, at Eskenazi Hall, 735 W. New York St. The opening event is free to the public. The exhibit runs through April 2 in the Marsh Gallery of Eskenazi Hall.

About Art Therapy at Herron School of Art and Design

Herron School of Art and Design’s Master in Art Therapy program, a two-year, full-time residential program, is the only one of its kind in the state of Indiana. The program provides practitioners with academic, clinical and research experience to obtain the credentials of registration as an art therapist according to the educational guidelines established by the American Art Therapy Association, as well as licensure as a mental health counselor. Built in partnership with the Indiana University School of Medicine, the program pays close attention to the neurobiological mechanisms at the root of creative expression and symbolic, unconscious communication.
