Miranda Van Rooyen

Art and Psychology

Class of 2017

Miranda did an internship with RE-create, an open arts student for street-involved youth in downtown Hamilton. She says, “Making art with the youth [at RE-create] allowed me to get to know each person in unanticipated ways. My internship helped me understand the importance of art and psychology in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to know by just being in a classroom. Art can be used as part of a self-healing process, whether a person considers themselves to be an artist or not.”
