dc.description.abstractThis heuristic study investigated the artistic media preferences of the visually impaired researcher in order to enhance the availability and fit of art therapy service provision for the population of individuals with visual impairment. The participant engaged in art interaction with materials ranging from fluid to resistive, recorded written responses regarding thoughts and feelings associated with using each material, and completed pretest- and post- Impact to Self- Worth assessment. Thematic analysis was used to determine common themes. The findings suggested that the participant preferred to use art materials between the spectrum of fluid and resistive media. Overarching themes included (a) control, (b) freedom, (c) challenges, (d) relaxation and anxiety reduction, (e) creativity and self-expression, (f) self-worth, and (g) response to art materials.en_US
