Art Therapy Groups are available privately and through partnerships with other organizations in the community. They are offered as an Open Studio format or an Art Psychotherapy format.

Open Studio

In an Open Studio each group member brings their own focus to each meeting. Participants have the guidance of the art therapist, as well as the group members. There is time for non-verbal creative processes as well as verbal sharing and exploring. The group may be focused on the creative process and look very much like an art studio class. However, the focus is on the therapeutic process and facilitating insight and personal growth.

Art Psychotherapy Group

In an art psychotherapy group, there is a specific issue or topic that brings the group members together. For example, a group for adults who have experienced a personal trauma. The group may be more structured and include specific art suggestions for focus.

Agencies may independently contract for a specific art psychotherapy group. For example, a transition group at a prison, a group for domestic violence survivors, a cognitive-behavioral art psychotherapy group for unsheltered mothers, a group for people living with cancer and so forth.
