our services

Our goal is to provide life-enriching art therapy programs to everyone, including individuals who otherwise would not have access to these services. We reach more than 1,800 people each year across a wide range of programs. Our services include:

contracted services

Agencies interested in enriching their existing programs or developing a brand new program can contract with us to provide art therapy services directly to their clients (individually or in groups) on site or through our studio. Learn more.

Hospital-based Programs

Medical agencies and institutions interested in expanding their in-patient and health programs can contract with us to provide art therapy services on site as an additional service or as part of an established treatment team. Learn more.

Community Art Classes

Our “Discover the Artist Within You” classes are modeled after our philosophy that art making is central to the healing process. Classes utilize creative therapeutic arts techniques in group settings to focus on specific concerns and various approaches to art using painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture. Learn more.

community art classes

For over 30 years, we’ve offered unique, innovative community-based art therapy classes. Our “Discover the Artist Within You” (or “DTA”) classes are provided on a quarterly basis throughout the year and are open to all members of the community. Our credentialed art therapists are especially equipped to work with emotional, cognitive, or physical limitations and are fully adaptable to the needs of the student. We are a strengths-focused organization and therefore choice and control are left in the hands of the artist.  Our therapists nurture safe and creative spaces for individuals to rediscover and enhance themselves through art.

Our classes are available to people with special needs on a sliding fee scale basis. Our Board of Trustees and staff work hard to ensure that no person needing services is ever turned away because of inability to pay.
