Enrollment limited. Journey into the process of making art for the purpose of self-expression, using a wide range of art materials. We explore the bridge between art and psychology by examining various art therapy techniques, the stages of group therapy, and the prescriptive use of the art medium. Students are encouraged to become aware of their own reactions in class, which may parallel the experiences of those they might treat through art therapy. Certificate students must register in person with a certificate registration form signed by the program coordinator. For more information, call 212.229.5567 or email
