Samantha Arndell joined us at The Center on Central during the month of May as an intern, completing her senior project at Conestoga High School in the Tredyffrin-Easttown School District. We want to take this opportunity to congratulate Samantha on her graduation on June 3, 2014.
Miss Samantha taught our campers figure drawings, proportions and sketching in various body poses. In addition, she was able to observe art therapy sessions in preparation for her anticipated field of study.
"I'm interested in sociology, and I love creating art, but the main thing I want to focus on is helping others to the best of my abilities.
Interning at the Center on Central has allowed me to work on the skills needed for that. I didn't know much about Art Therapy when I got here, but the longer I've been here, the longer I've been able to see how it helps people interact and express themselves in a safe, creative environment. I plan to pursue my studies at Drexel University in the Fall, where they have an Art Therapy Master's program, and after this experience, I will seriously consider pursuing studies in that area."
