WELCOME TO THE ART THERAPY STUDIO
The Art Therapy Studio is the oldest creative arts therapy program of its kind in the country. Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for those with physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges through the therapeutic use of art. We use art making led by credentialed art therapists to promote healing and wellness.
