Abstract

The goal of the presented study was to make students acquainted with various perspectives of an object with respect to cognitive flexibility in the mental processes, such as sensation and perception. The study group was composed of 40 university students. Participants were given Data Collection Form, Course Assessment Form, instructions developed by the researchers. Students were asked to take photographs according to the instructions. Pictures were exhibited and Photography Study exercises were administrated. The results showed that despite the group features and similarities, there were individual differences in participants’ point of views in relation to the photographed objects. The participants reported that in spite of those individual differences they improved in terms of communication and working as a team by the help of the implemented art therapy techniques in the exercises. This study demonstrated that art therapy techniques are operational and resourceful in student-centred education applications, as well.
