Benefits of Art Therapy
Art therapy is a recognized form of psychotherapy that uses creative processes to improve mental health, self-awareness, and personal growth. It can reduce stress and anxiety, improve communication skills, aid conflict resolution and identity exploration, and provide a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Art therapy is a versatile and powerful tool for emotional healing and personal development.

As part of the ongoing initiative, .ART has pledged a $1 million endowment for graduate fellowships for students in the Art Therapy Program at George Washington University. The endowment will support deserving students to complete the graduate program and provide art therapy services to a broader community, especially in these particularly stressful times.
The Art Therapy Program, which is part of GW's Columbian College of Arts & Sciences, is one of the first of its kind in the United States. Students explore all aspects of art therapy, trauma training and diagnosis, and complete 900 internship hours with direct client contact in the on-campus clinic.
