Join Art Therapy Studio online for a Virtual Art Therapy Info Workshop this Thursday Jun 11 from 7 – 8 p.m.

This workshop is designed to demystify Art Therapy. What is it, who does it help, and who is an art therapist will be explained.

Have you heard of art therapy? Have you ever considered participating in art therapy, but aren’t sure what to expect? Have you ever wondered how art therapy and art instruction are different?

Art Therapy, described as the therapeutic use of art, was defined and developed into a distinct discipline in the 1940s. Today credentialed art therapists work with numerous hospitals, mental health facilities, addiction treatment centers, non-profits, and individuals to improve mental health and fine motor skills, along with valuable socialization.

In this workshop we hope to demystify what art therapy is, who is and is not an art therapists, and even how you can become an art therapist should this be the path for you. Participants will be led through an art intervention, similar to one used in an art therapy session, and will have the opportunity to ask questions in a learning environment.

This event is free and open to the public.
