Abstract

“Nothing is completely original: all creative work builds on what came before” (Kleon, 2012). Expressive arts therapists, like artists, work with art that has come before. Art materials, processes, products, and practices all take place within a cultural landscape. How do we think about and understand the art we build upon when taken within a cultural context? This talk will explore essential questions of multicultural competency, humility, and appropriation within the field of expressive arts therapy.
