Art Therapy Graduate Programs
Art Therapy graduate programs prepare students to use art to help improve the psychological health of patients. Art therapists believe that the creative process inherent in making art is healing and supportive to one's emotional well-being. Art therapy is not educational or recreational, though it is often enjoyable for the patient. If you'd like to practice as an art therapist, you must have at least a masters degree. Attending an art therapy graduate school is one path towards this career, but some art therapists obtain their graduate degree in a related field such as psychology, too which they add post-graduate training and certification in art therapy. Potential applicants to art therapy graduate schools should be interested in the use of art as a therapeutic approach. The strongest candidates will have a BA in Psychology or Art, and a good portfolio of work.
