Art Therapy

Art Therapists build trust, using the creative process, enabling clients to find the confidence, hope, and courage to face life’s problems. Art Therapy at Piedmont College prepares you for entry into graduate counseling programs. Your psychology classes build empathy for others, while your art courses develop an understanding of the history and making of art.


About the Program

The Art Therapy degree combines extensive course work in both Art and Psychology. You build a personal visual voice as an artist while developing an understanding of Psychology. You work in a supportive environment set in inspiring facilities led by dedicated faculty. You have the opportunity to build skills in ceramics, digital fabrication, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. During your final year, in preparation for graduate work, you complete an internship while developing and implementing a research project focused in art therapy.
