Café Conversations: Art Therapy
08/21/2019, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Art therapy is defined by the American Art Therapy Association as a mental health profession in which clients, facilitated by a masters-level art therapist, use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to explore their feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety, and increase self-esteem. Our Art Therapy Access Program partners with area organizations to provide a multi-visit outreach program that includes art-making sessions with a credentialed art therapist, museum tours, family/caregiver tours, and an exhibition of the resulting artwork.
For this conversation, Kathy Dumlao, Director of Education at the Brooks, and Paige Scheinberg, MS, ATR-BC, will discuss the museum’s Art Therapy Access Program. They will introduce patrons to the unique benefits participants receive from art therapy and the art therapy program from the Brooks Museum. Grab a cup of coffee and invite a friend. Café Conversations are not the same without you!
