Tutor: Catherine Poussard

Catherine Poussard trained in Fine Art at RMIT (painting)  and worked on community arts projects with all sorts of people in places considered to be at the borderlands of mainstream culture. With a pageant for exploration- of the inner world, Jungian depth psychology and existential expression of the human condition, Catherine has been dancing, writing, creating, bringing up her two children and moulding her practice as a soul- orientated psychotherapist in Central Victoria. Catherine sees living much like artmaking; sometimes messy and sometimes in beautiful proportion. She has been facilitating art making groups for adults to give ‘creative form’ to ideas of deeper meaning for over 20 years.
