Reclaiming Personal Power through Symbolic Image-Making
In this art workshop, psychologist and artist Dr. Nisha Gupta will invite participants to reflect on and describe a specific experience of expressing personal power in their lives. Then, she will guide them to create symbolic visual art based on this experience, and finally to analyze their image in order to gain a deeper understanding of what personal power means to them. Supplies needed: writing utensils (pen/pencil), several sheets of paper, and drawing/painting utensils (colored pencils, markers, or paints).

Dr. Nisha Gupta is an assistant professor of psychology at the University of West Georgia. She has nine years of training as a psychotherapist, with a focus on empowerment in the face of personal and societal traumas. She is also an arts-based phenomenological researcher, which is a method of creating artwork that illuminates the deeper meanings of our lived experiences for the purposes of fostering personal and societal awareness, catharsis, and transformation.
