Art Therapy at 3D Printing Workshops
(3D Printing Industry) New Visuality, an art non-profit geared towards the disadvantaged, and York Mind, a mental health organization based in the UK, have updated art therapy for the 21st century. They recently gave a group of 15 people, stricken with mental stress and anxiety, the chance to gain more confidence and higher aspirations through the use of 3D printing.
Through funding from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, the groups held a series of 15 workshops with their clients, who sprang from a full range of ages. The clients created artwork in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, collage and photography. Some of the workshops’ clients were able to convert their two dimensional line drawings into 3D models with help from GoPrint3D. These prints were exhibited alongside the other works at a pre-Christmas show and can be purchased at the New Visuality webstore.
