Meet Krupa Jhaveri, BFA Communication Design '04
Krupa Jhaveri graduated from Parsons in 2004 with a BFA in Communication Design, later pursuing a MPS in Art Therapy at SVA. Recognizing the power of art both in product & process, she then moved to south India to provide safe spaces for creative expression and healing with her organization Sankalpa: Art Journeys. Currently she is pursuing a PhD in Expressive Arts Therapy at EGS/Switzerland. Early in the pandemic, her design skills (combined with experience in facilitating expression) generated a series of 12 unique handmade art kits supporting about 100 artisans in India in this challenging time. The kits combine passions for sustainable eco-friendly design, building bridges through craft advocacy and traditional handmade art forms, and especially encouraging art for all!
