Arts & Advocacy Art Opening

Arts & Advocacy Art Show in the Dr. George Streeter Gallery

The theme of Art Therapy Studio’s Client Artist 2023 Art Show is “Arts & Advocacy.” The works on display demonstrate how art is used in community and personal advocacy. The following images are of individual works created by various artists.

The art show also includes collaborative artworks created by client artists in partnership Cleveland Treatment Center.

[Artist: Adrianne Title: No Really… I’m Fine.] This creative piece depicts the image of our deepest internal expressions that we tend to ignore. Attending to our mental state of mind is self-care. It’s okay to not be okay.
[Artist: Alexandria Cheri Daniels Title: Love]
[Artist: Kara S. Title: Neurodivergent] This piece is about embracing and supporting the wide array of neurodiversity or ways of thinking & behaving. The fact that there is nothing wrong! It’s just different than neurotypical, it’s beautiful.
[Artist: Jena Jeter Title: Jena’s Fantasy World]
[Artist: Scott Mars Title: Soaring Eagle] Our minds need moments of creating & utilizing our intuition. They need to make use of the positive influences in & around us.
[Artist: Dionna Nichols Title: Anhedonia]
[Artist: Courtney Rak Title: My Voice] This represents my way of communicating. People need to listen with their heart.
[Artist: Eddie Brown Jr. Title: Personal Shield] When you have lots of things that you are going through & need some self-protection… it’s always good to have a personal shield to protect your well-being.
[Artist: Mizzlovie Title: Unbreak] This piece represents how abuse & negativity affects the heart and how positive things can help the heart to heal. Each side of the heart represents the different emotions that either bring heartbreak or help to bring happiness to our lives.
[Artist: Sarah Marinelly Title: Consumer: Cancer, Obesity, Diabetes & Illness]
[Artist: Lacy Talley Title: Growth]

Full Time Community Art Therapist

Full Time Expressive Art Specialist

In response to the rising awareness of art’s therapeutic value in non-clinical settings, we see an uptick in its integration within schools, libraries, and senior centers to bolster social-emotional learning and mental health—making art an increasingly recognized, accessible means of enhancing well-being without the stigma often associated with traditional therapy. The arts serve as an inclusive solution, particularly where healthcare costs and socio-economic hurdles limit therapy access. Ohio’s educational standards have evolved to highlight the need for social-emotional learning, and our community-based art interventions are aligned with these goals. Our innovative art services support the wider community and enable Art Therapy Studio’s seasoned therapists to focus their specialized skills on providing clinical care. This strategic division ensures that we comprehensively address a variety of needs, fostering emotional growth and stress reduction through creative engagement for all age groups. 

The field of art therapy offers a unique avenue for individuals to utilize creative expression as a therapeutic tool. However, there exists a significant challenge in terms of diversity and attrition within this profession. The high requirement of a Master’s degree in Art Therapy often limits who can afford to enter the field, creating financial barriers that deter many talented individuals. At Art Therapy Studio, we recognize the importance of addressing these issues and are trying to actively implement initiatives aimed at increasing diversity and reducing attrition. 

To tackle the lack of diversity, we have created a Full-Time position that allows individuals with Bachelor’s degrees in Art Therapy to gain practical experience under the supervision of credentialed art therapists in non-clinical roles. Additionally, we aim to offer guidance in helping them pursue their Master’s degree in Art Therapy while they are employed at our organization. Through our mentorship, we can ensure that aspiring art therapists receive the necessary support while maintaining ethical practice standards. By implementing these initiatives, we hope to make the field of art therapy more accessible and inclusive, allowing a wider range of individuals to harness the healing power of creative expression. 




Pay: $39,520/Year
