Community Art Therapy Programs

Our Community Art Therapy Programs are modeled after our philosophy that art making is central to the healing process. Programs utilize creative art therapy techniques in group settings to focus on specific concerns and various approaches to art using painting, drawing, collage, sculpture and more.

Community Art Therapy Programs are provided on a quarterly basis throughout the year. Our credentialed art therapists are especially equipped to work with emotional, cognitive, or physical limitations and are fully adaptable to the needs of our artists. 


We believe everyone can benefit from participating in art therapy, this is why all of our Community Art Therapy Programs are open to everyone, no referral needed. We also provide income-based financial assistance for those who qualify, please contact us at 216-791-9303 for more information.

  • First Time Participants

    Starting something new can be intimidating, especially with people you don’t know. This is why we require all first time participants to schedule a "Meet & Greet" tour with one of our Art Therapy Studio Liaisons by calling our Office Manager at 216-791-9303. Our Office Manager will work with you to schedule a convenient time to visit our Studio and answer any questions you have about receiving services, billing & cost of receiving services, recommend classes to register for, and give you a tour of Studio.
