Art therapy is a human service profession that uses art media, the creative art process, and patient/client responses as reflections of an individual's development, abilities, personality, interests, concerns, and conflicts. Art therapists in individual, couples, family, and group therapy formats serve populations of all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds.

About

The Avila art therapy curriculum meets recommendations of the American Art Therapy Association. Opportunities for art therapists may include employment in nursing homes, day care centers, residential facilities for children, psychiatric hospitals, battered women shelters, hospice, mental health centers, and schools.

Art Therapy courses investigate history, theory, and methods in both a classroom and studio situation. You'll explore career possibilities, meet practicing art therapists, and visit sites where art therapy is used.
