Internships

Intern With Us!

Art Therapy Studio is the oldest creative arts therapy program of its kind in the country. Our mission is to enhance individuals’ quality of life through therapeutic art. We use art making led by credentialed art therapists to promote healing and wellness. 

Art Therapy Studio Is Committed To Diversity

Art is a universal phenomenon and holds the power to heal us mentally and physically. Art Therapy Studio is dedicated to bringing the healing power of art to our entire community regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, mental health diagnosis, and disability. We are committed to providing art therapy to historically marginalized and underrepresented populations and elevating art therapists from historically marginalized and underrepresented populations. 

Please be aware that at this time we can only accept volunteers and interns 18 years of age and older, no exceptions. 

Currently Art Therapy Studio offers two distinct internship tracts listed below:
