Re: [art_education] art therapy
- As I have been reading the current discussion, I
wonder if alternative schools and settings such as
Boys Town (as we have in Nebraska) or JD educational
programs might be other avenues to look into. An art
teacher who retired a few years ago from our
department was just hired to teach at Boys Town for
next year. I have no idea as to what type of
certification requirements or training are needed for
such settings. It's worth looking into. Just an idea.

Perhaps they have some publications you could find
A wonderful book about this: Coles, Robert. THEIR EYES MEETING THE WORLD Available
used for almost nothing on Amazon.com; a must-read in my opinion.
Actually Amazon has a number of books, three of them under twenty dollars in the Art
I studied with Peter London who is, among other things, an art therapist. His book is
DRAWING FROM WITHIN and is aimed at adult artists who are stuck...but it is a great read.
Also inexpensive in paperback. He has a great quote to the effect that all art is only the
by- product of the transforming Self. (he says it better of course)
A Google search for "art therapy" brings up a lot of stuff; good hunting!

- I am a registered art therapist, and because of the practicums that you have to complete and having supervision hours along with your academic studies, I don't think an online class is offered. And if it is and not recognized by the American Art Therapy Assoc. you would be wasting your money.Edna J. Patterson-Petty
When words are too deep, try art therapy
