by Catherine Hyland Moon




In art making, materials and media are the intermediaries between private ideas, thoughts and feelings, and their external manifestation in a tangible, sensual form. Thus, materials provide the core components of the exchange that occurs between art therapists and clients. This book focuses on the sensory-based, tangible vocabulary of materials and media and its relevance to art therapy. It provides a historical account of the theory and use of materials and media in art therapy, as well as an examination of the interface between art therapy, contemporary art materials and practices, and social/critical theory. Contributing authors provide examples of how art therapists have transgressed conventional material boundaries and expanded both thinking and practice in the field. The chapters discuss traditional as well as innovative media, such as body adornments, mail and video art, and comic books. An accompanying DVD contains media clips, as well as 69 color images.

GreAt Book for Art Therapists.

Very dense, but helpful and diverse with a variety of insights into the various types of artistic therapy tools available for clients. The black and white photos where off putting - color images of the works would have been much more engaging. Case studies - always helpful and I would have appreciated others.

This could use an update. There is nothing in here that is new or informational. Much of the contents of this book can be found on the Internet

Rent, don't buy this book. It is an important read because of the editor who is an interesting and intelligent art therapist and professor. But I have to agree with the reviewer who says it serves as a good sleep inducer. The lack of editing and the lack of focus in many of the chapters is too out of control and frankly makes an exciting topic into one boring essay after the next. Media and materials should be dynamic and exciting. It is too bad this book uses up that book title and makes it hard for another author to take on this topic in a clear and inspiring way.

This text was a joy to read on a screen, where as with other texts this may not be the case. The book is organized beautifully in a way which allows the reader to flip through it at a fast rate.
It is rich in knowledge and a graceful understanding of the evolution of art therapy and what it is today.
