I wondered if my degree in photography would be strong enough to start my career in art therapy? i would love to help children by them using photography to express themselves but i can not find a career that does this.

Thanks

Nicky

The American Art Therapy Association has a list of approved Masters programs across the U.S. that will prepare you to become a Registered and Board Certified art therapist.

I have two special needs boys and an undiagnosed stubborn hubby. I have a degree in fine art, but doing paintings in our apartment is not practical. I used to make all my clothes. I loved coordinating clothes with accessories because I love color and design. After 19 years of trials, tribulations, etc, I have turned to jewelry making – I assemble semi-precious gemstone beads of different colors, shapes, etc with the metal findings, etc. It satisfies the need to coordinate colors with shapes and to develop designs that I find beautiful. So, the essence of my creativity is working with color, and coordinating color, shapes, and creating a design, My suggestion to you is determine the essence of creativity that you love and are good at and then find an affordable, practical way to doing that. Do you like two dimensional art (graphics)? Then, there are many avenues – modern quilts, tiled table tops, logos for whoever, etc, etc. Do you like art that you can re-do and re-do until it is just right? you might try computer graphics – it is really cool to apply all of the special effects! I hope you find something satisfying! If you have a Facebook page, be sure to be my friend! Best Regards

I don’t even know where to begin. I am a 42 year old single mom of 4 children ages 8 to 20. I have spent my whole life living for everyone else and taking care of everyone else. Ive been through the ringer after 17 years in a really messed up marriage and 4 beautiful children that became my reason for everything in my life. I am now been divorced 5 years and am engaged to an amazing and supportive man. It’s time for me to figure out my purpose for me and my life besides mom. I have had my Graphics design degree since I was 20. I do not love graphic design. I do love everything hands on creative. Whether it be creating murals with paint or creating beautiful gardens with my hands in the dirt. I’ve always said that my hands in paint or the dirt is my therapy. Never realizing that it actually can be. God blessed me with the gift of art and creativity. I have always wondered why he gave me this gift and felt I was supposed to use it to make a difference. Now, I actually think finding this sight is showing me that I can. But now, I do not even know where to begin. Or if it is even really possible with 3 kids still at home as a single mom. I work from home and have crazy children schedules. Can you help me or give me advise on where to even begin….? I think it is time for me to start putting my future and me on my list of important things.
Thank you,
Nikki Duncan
Rawson, Ohio

I was just looking for abit more advice in this therapy, I would love to work with helping the mind, changing negative mindsets.

i am a school counsellor and do use art therapy with children. It has always helped me specially with younger ones. For them it is difficult to express verbally probably because they themselves are unaware of such feelings and pain. Now, i want to pursue some short course or summer school to have value addition and professional learning of using art as therapy. I would be glad if, someone can suggest me a course worth doing.

I’m currently looking into becoming an art therapist as a career. I’m 16 and choosing my A levels. I’ve chosen Psychology but also Product Design instead of Art. Can I still become an art therapist on those options or would I have to swap my Product Design for an Art course? Also, after college, where would I need to go and what would I need to do to follow this career path?
Thank you in advance

I recently graduated from Seattle Pacific University with a Bachelors in Illustration. I was told Illustration carries over into fine arts since so much of art today is layered over the other. Is this true? Or would I have to go back to school in order to get the requirements for fine arts? Also, Do I specifically need a fine arts degree or can it be something more focused like illustration? I am a painter and drawer and have been doing it since I was 6. I want to help people. Art is very revealing and can show so much about a person and hidden emotions in the subconscious. I also love physiology and would not mind taking classes for it if I knew what to take.

I’ve worked as a Master’s level therapist for over 20 years and have been gravitating toward Creative Arts Therapy for the last couple of years. It truly allows clients to begin the examination of issues and ultimately address them in a safe manner.

It was an amazing experience and it released emotions that I never knew existed. As a psychologist I also observed other participants and was amazed to see that this one week course produced therapeutic effect equivalent to months if not years of therapy.
