Eva Carlston Academy's Art Director, Maggie Willis, incorporates the Fieldwork Method, a non-suggestive peer feedback-based art critique process, into the art curriculum while working with the girls enrolled in the treatment program. As a trained Fieldwork facilitator, Maggie recently presented at the Field National Network Conference in Miami, Florida on her experience in incorporating Fieldwork in a therapeutic setting and authored an article on the subject.
Through many different art mediums, Eva Carlson students are able to access emotions that have been buried and possibly too painful to express verbally. The Fieldwork Method teaches students a process in which they let their art speak for itself. Through this, students are able to hear feedback about their art's voice instead of defending the message they intended.
