Welcome to Art Therapy
The Art Therapy Program at Wayne State University prepares professional art therapists and counselors who are knowledgeable in art therapy and counseling theories and techniques, who can translate these theories into effective practice, and who have the commitment, competence, respect for diversity among all people and who ascribe to the highest ethical standards and practices.
Consistent with the College theme, and University mission, the Art Therapy Program prepares art therapists who are reflective, innovative, committed to their field, and who have the personal qualities necessary to help others acquire skills and understandings for quality of life. The program places special emphasis on providing art therapy service in urban areas, with opportunities to practice in Detroit and surrounding neighborhoods through service-learning course assignments, community service opportunities associated with ArtsCorpsDetroit and internships.
