    I am very interested in learning more about earning an art therapy degree. Please send me information or links that will be helpful.

    I live in Denver but could commute to Boulder. Currently I am an artist but I would like to expand my vision and how my art is used for others.

    I have been running from this topic for many years. I talk about it so much with my art teachers. All my teachers say that I never give myself enough credit because I doubt myself in so many ways. But, I guess after my near death experience Janurary 2011 and again the only thing that brought happiness into my life was with a paint brush in my hand.
    I am still in recovering and have lots of physical therapy and other things to teach to learn to live independantly until I learn how to walk again. I was in school for Graphic Design which i will finish since I really do not have much more longer until I Graduate. Just need time to focus on my health. Which in rehab I started painting with other paients. And they asked me if I wanted to do somehting once a month. I live in Mississippi and I was disabled before I couldn’t walk in Janurary. I struggle with PTSD and some other things. So moving is a huge a leap even though my heart belongs in Co. I have some family there and I have always had something drawing me there. Maybe not in the city but I would love to live outside. I need to know everything.

    Well i wanted to find great colleges for art therapy. I’ve always said art has great meaning because it does, It can help people express who they are or what they feel. I love art and i don’t have a general type i create, but i normally draw, paint, sculpt, anything in the art world. I completely love art because of past things i dealt with and art seemed to make me feel a lot better. please send me information on any high ranked colleges having to do with art therapy. thank you :)

    I was referred to art therapy through my PT who said you have unusual treatments. One is a plunger similar to a toilet plunger that is much smaller and fits over the knee cap. he said to contact you as I cannot locate this device anywhere.

    Can I purchase this from you please?

    Eureka! I have finally found my Passion. I had this in mind eons ago while volunteering at hospitals, thinking the patients should be listening to music, drawing, painting to console them during their stay. Thought it would benefit the elderly to have someone play classical guitar music, or flute. I did not know this major area of study was available. Now I do, and want to know how to get started. I’ve been told it is Never too late! I was told by an art professor that I am a “natural artist”. I love art in a variety of mediums, I see art everywhere, because it IS! Happiness is finding one’s Passion!
