Art is a powerful tool for communication, motivation, and healing. In this course, you will learn how to harness the power art yields with creative strategies designed for the art classroom while gaining an understanding of the field of art therapy and the role of the art therapist as compared to the role of the art educator. These strategies will help you to foster self-esteem and self-awareness, cultivate emotional resilience, and promote creative insight in yourself and your students.
The art therapy field is led by professional art therapists dedicated to and trained in mental health and human services. This course will not lead to certification or licensure in art therapy.
