Contracted Art Therapy Programs
We Want To Work With You!
We provide customizable and fully integrated fee-for-service programs designed to meet established goals. Our studio is unique because we not only provide a credentialed art therapist, we also include supervision, peer support, and continuing education for our staff as part of our hourly rate. Our goal is to provide you with the highest level of therapy to maximize the effectiveness of your program. 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.
Our art therapists are specially trained to promote change through involvement in art making within the context of a therapeutic relationship. A master’s degree is required to practice art therapy. An art therapist who completes an additional 1,000 hours of supervised clinical work may become a registered art therapist (ATR). Further certification is earned by passing a national exam to become Board Certified (BC). Art Therapy Studio will provide an art therapist with a minimum of a master’s degree. All art therapists are supervised by a Board Certified art therapist.
We offer quality art therapy programs to hospitals, health & human service agencies, schools, and businesses. Currently we provide art therapy services to Jennings Center for Older Adults, Family & Community Services, Access Inc., Westlake City Schools, Life Exchange Center, Cleveland Treatment Center, United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Cleveland, Westside Community House, Far West Center, Eliza Bryant Village, Highland Springs, Calfee Halter & Griswold, LLP, Cleveland Public Library, and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center.

Things To Consider When Working With Us
We make sure that the rooms in which the art therapy sessions take place will be equipped with adequate tables and chairs, and access to a sink. The rooms shall be clean, floors swept, tables and sink areas clean and have adequate paper towels, soap, and counters clean and free of clutter.
The art therapist will be responsible for purchasing, preparing, and maintaining all supplies needed, and for on-site set-up and clean-up. There is a per person, per session art supply fee.
We ask that our contract sites provide a storage cabinet (locked & with a key for the art therapist) in or near the room in which the art therapy services are to take place for supplies, storage of artwork, and projects in process. We recommend a metal storage cabinet that measures 18” X 36” X 72” with shelves approximately 18” X 36”. Additional storage may be needed for artwork that is in process or needs to dry. If storage is not available on site, an extra 30 minutes of service will be billed to cover the time needed to transport art and materials into and out of the facility.
In order to maintain a high level of quality, program evaluation forms may be requested from the participants, family members, caregivers, or the on-site staff.
