Art Therapy

Lewis & Clark offers rigorous art therapy training to students to become qualified mental health practitioners and ethical leaders who advocate for social justice, provide service and clinically focused care to individuals, groups and families. Our mission is to educate students using art making to deepen self-awareness, and to develop reflective practitioners who competently apply theory to practice.

Art therapists are master-level clinicians who work with people of all ages across a broad spectrum of practice. Guided by ethical standards and scope of practice, their education and supervised training prepares them for culturally proficient work with diverse populations in a variety of settings. Honoring individuals’ values and beliefs, art therapists work with people who are experiencing medical and mental health challenges, as well as individuals seeking emotional, creative, and spiritual growth.
