Saturday Art Therapy For Adults and Children/Youth Workshop

Offered annually since 1992, the Saturday Art Therapy Workshop is an art therapy experience for children and adults, and a practicum class (AED 7380 Art Therapy Practicum) for graduate art therapy students, supervised by Holly Feen, Ph.D., A.T.R.-BC, and faculty members who are registered art therapists.

The Workshop runs for ten (10) consecutive weeks during the fall semesters. Both children and adults interested in participating in the one-and-one-half hour art therapy sessions are welcome to apply.

Graduate art therapy students design and facilitate the weekly sessions geared toward enhancing creativity, self-expression, and personal growth, while considering the strengths, needs, and goals of everyone.
