Art Therapist in a variety of social situations, including Children’s Centers, Rehabilitation Centers, Senior Centers, etc. Must have a Master’s degree to practice.
Marygrove College’s Art Department believes that an education in the visual arts, a precursor to becoming an art therapist, should consist of the development and understanding of artistic skills, associated theories of creating art, art history and the importance of building a personal aesthetic voice. An integral part of this philosophy focuses on developing within our students the dedication and desire needed to move forward in their artistic endeavors and to using those skills to help others through art therapy.
