I have the same passion- I want to use art therapy and show Christ’s love while doing it. I don’t know too much as far as answering your question, if you find out anything, please let me know- samanthac313@yahoo.com
However, I can tell you that I recommend Palm Beach Atlantic Un. in West Palm, FL to get your bachelors and then transfer to FSU to get your masters.(but FSU is not a Christian school, and PBA is only 1 of the many options. PBA can be very pricey, but worth the experience in my opinion if you can afford it. They help with financial aid. But like I said- very expensive, so any Christian shool that you can get the proper education for your bachelors should work out. I would call a grad school once you think you know which one you want to go to and make sure all or most of the classes check off so that you can get right into the masters program. For instance, if you went to PBA, majored in Psych, minored in studio art.. you would have to take one class the summer before you start at Lesley university in Cambridge, MA(another option for grad school for mastering not in art therapy.) but yet again- Lesley is not a Christian college. Hope this helped a little.

I’m honestly praying that a church or Christ centered place sees a need for art therapy so that I can work there- but it might not work that way. Might have to work solo, and then volunteer at church using art on the side, or work solo , getting my own business license and still keeping it my own little ministry by showing His love.. Etc.

So..in this case, do i have to get PhD? or just MA is fine ?

Just make sure you have the high school courses and grades required to gain admission to the university degree you plan to take. This usually (in BC, anyway) consists of Math 11, at least one Science 11, English 11 & 12, and 5 qualified courses at the grade 12 level (read: anything with a provincial exam attached to it). Make sure you check the admissions pages on the websites of every school you plan to attend so you are clear about it. Also make appointments with the admissions offices if you can and speak with them in person, or email them directly. It doesn’t hurt to be clear.

Some art therapy programs require a Fine Arts (visual art) degree. In this case a portfolio submission to the university is required. Some art therapy programs require that you have a psychology degree, or at least some psychology courses. From what I can see, most programs are not picky about what degree you have, as long as you have a certain number of credits in studio arts courses (or are able/willing to provide a portfolio to demonstrate your work with artistic media) and in all cases a certain number of courses or credits, and sometimes specific courses, are required in psychology to lay the foundation for the psychological aspect. Research your chosen art therapy programs and find out what their requirements are. The sooner you do that, the better; it will inform your decision on what to study at the Bachelor’s level.

Comment on Animal Collage Art & The Art of Animal Collages by Hernan http://www.arttherapyblog.com/art-therapy-activities/animal-collage-art/#comment-327879 Wed, 18 May 2016 12:31:59 +0000 http://www.arttherapyblog.com/art-therapy-activities/animal-collage-art/#comment-327879 After reading the activity a few times, I’ve arrived at the conclusion that my students can use a self portrait and fill the inside of those 5 animals, at least five. In other words, in an 8 x 11 sheet have your students draw a picture of themselves. After choosing the 5 animals have them fill in the face but leaving the eyes, nose and mouth part uncovered. Since I have kinder kiddos, I will have them cut out picture of animals from magazines and they will paste them to their canvas. Any area that is not covered by the animal cutout I will have them color in using water colors. Before the activity I will discuss the many feeling we may have during the day, or what ever. Then follow up the discussion by reading The Mixed-Up Chameleon by Eric Carle. The title should be something like, The Happy Me. Anyways, I love the idea, its just the execution of it that is vague to me since I’m art deficient.

I am currently a graduate student working on my Masters in Education and am interested in becoming an art therapist. However, there are no art therapy programs in Texas so I am in the process of applying to an online graduate program. I have my BA in Psychology with a minor in Art and have worked as a substitute teacher in elementary and middle school grades, 4th grade English and Reading Interventionist to general education students and students with learning disabilities. Also, as a substitute teacher, I worked with special education and inclusion students. What volunteer opportunities in Texas would be good experience to gain incite to art therapy?

I want to do a masters in art therapy abroad but first I found this training program called foundation course in expressive and creative art therapy in my country, India. So, I wish to know if this will be useful and meet my requirements for PG abroad as I plan to this this for one year before i head out for Masters. The program consists of 40 internship hours plus trains the participants holistically in drama, movement and art therapy in a variety of settings – ngos, schools, hospitals etc. I would like some advice please! 🙂

For example, I want to have a painting in my meditation space with apple green with accents of aubergine purple (two cool colours with warm (gold/red) undertones) if that would have a significant impact in comparison to a painting that has aquamarine and Crown royal purple (two cool colors with blue undertones) on someone’s moods?

However the trend in OT is away from psych (less then 3% of OTs work in mental health settings), so even though in the UK one can do additional work and sit for boards, in the US one still has to be a mental health professional.

Comment on Self-Exploration – Exploring Yourself Through Art Therapy by Mieisha http://www.arttherapyblog.com/art-therapy-ideas/self-exploration/#comment-327436 Mon, 14 Mar 2016 02:38:06 +0000 http://www.arttherapyblog.com/art-therapy-ideas/self-exploration/#comment-327436 After conducting my own research on Art Therapy, I was able to read about the healing power of art. It can help individuals manage several mental, physical and emotional illnesses. From anxiety to infertility Art Therapy has been proven helpful in many ways. Art Therapies success comes from the fact that art is free and perceptual, allowing the patients to use art as their canvas for positive communication. Art allows the brain to function in ways that verbal communication cannot. No matter the age of the individual or the skill level this form of therapy can be very helpful. A form of Art Therapy is offered in mostly all grade school, in the form of basic art classes. The time that each student spends creating art is allowing the time to be creative, clam the brain and slow down during the school day. In addition, individuals can treat themselves in the comforts of home or wherever necessary. This can be done by simply picking up a paint brush or molding clay. Art therapy in various forms is helping heal individuals daily.

I am also an artist and I love working with children and adults with disabilities and/or people who have been abused. I think an Art Therapist is my calling and I am interested in pursuing in this field. I am unsure of the requirements needed (as I majored in Special Education). I’d appreciate your help. Thanks!

My daughter is a freshman at LSU in Baton Rouge, LA and she would like to become an art therapist working with disabled children. Can you tell me what major she should pursue prior to Art Therapy School? Her current major is Psychology, however we have also heard, that she could major in Early Childhood or Family Counseling or Early Education.

Thank you!

I have my MS in school psychology, my BA in Fine Art (with an emphasis in painting and drawing), and a minor in psychology. I hold three credentials in the following areas: pupil personnel services (to work in special education), a single subject in Art (to teach in junior high or high school), and a multiple subject credential (to teach elementary school)–All my credentials are current. I have been doing studio art and mural painting for the last 16 years in order to stay home and raise my children. What other coursework would be necessary to get my certification or license as an art therapist?

I’d REALLY appreciate if you could help me with this: I am very interested on taking a Child Art Therapy Course or Workshop in Vancouver but haven’t find anything besides de VATI which is a 2 years diploma. Do you know of any place where I could find something like this in Vancouver that is not a program, but a course or workshop?

Thanks a lot!

Vanessa
