The lecture will describe Jane’s experience of conducting the first art therapy group for a men’s maximum security prison: Sing Sing Correctional Institution in Ossining, New York, also known as The Big House, Up the River, and home of The Last Mile. Jane will share what she has learned about working with this special population…and how the uncluttered approach that I’ve discovered there could be adapted to work with many other different kinds populations.

Jane Marks Hart, MA, ATR-BC, LCAT Jane works with the residents of a Vermont shelter for teenage girls and incarcerated men at Sing Sing, where she facilitates the first-ever art therapy group in a maximum security prison for men. Hart's other passion/occupation is portraiture, including pets and farm animals, exotics and (increasingly) humans. Hart, who is fascinated by faces, tries to uncover not just what the subject looks like, but who he or she is.  Before art therapy, Hart was a journalist and author, writing for Glamour, Mademoiselle, Seventeen, Parents, Ladies Home Journal, Parents, New York, New York Times, Town and Country and others. Under the name of Jane Marks, she wrote five books, including The Hidden Children:  The secret survivors of the Holocaust.
