Reviews for Art Therapy Studio

Rating: 5 stars  

1 person found this review helpful

I sought out this organization for an internship as part of my graduate studies in Art Therapy. I considered it an honor to be selected by the Art Therapy Studio. The Art Therapy Studio serves a broad spectrum of clients both on-site and through-out the community through contracted work with other organizations. The process of creating builds both skills and self-esteem in clients. I have seen the smiles and personal growth of clients first hand when they accomplish something by their own efforts through the nurturing encouragement of the art therapists.

I volunteered for the Art Therapy Studio at MetroHealth for what began as a one year journey. Ultimately, I ended up staying for five years and taking 72 hours as part of the Clinical Art Therapy program. The reason I stayed is that I witnessed every Saturday how transformative art as therapy was for both the patients and families. Also tending to echo out into the hospital, it had the tendency to create a more positive attitude and experience for people working at the hospital. We occasionally would have staff join us. Wanting to rejoin this community of care, I recently decided to return to collage to obtain my Master's in Art Therapy and once again feel purpose driven.

Being a part of the Art Therapy Studio has been one of my greatest blessings since moving to NE Ohio. The programs are life-giving to all who participate. If only, there were more places like the Art Therapy Studio.......

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I interned for one year, growing both professionally and personally through the art experiences.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes needed, except more funds to expand programs to more people.

I've been volunteering with this organization for over two years and have viewed how much their work helps people. They make contact with a variey of age groups and can accomplish so much through the processes they use. Learning about the methods they use and how people can be affected by the work they do has been an amazing learning experience for me. I love that I can contribute and be a part of the organization.

I've attended their educational seminars to learn about the methods they use in art therapy and what the position is like as a career. They also talked about the different types of organizations that they work with.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes that I can think of.

She proudly shows her art work to our families and friends.She contributes to choosing colors for the rooms.She is also beginning to help little kids paint.Through all this she has become confident and successful .She has got over many of the problems she had.I would strongly support Art Therapy Studio and recommend others do so too.

I have volunteered my time to the Art Therapy Studio's Program Committee. I strongly believe in this form of care. As a person who has dedicated my career to mental health I see the value art therapy has in helping heal lives. I have found the people who work at the Art Therapy Studio to be caring and very professional. Their dedication to helping others is truly uplifting and I am very pleased with the direction the organization is moving towards. As a person who loves art and believes in the empowerment of helping others the Art Therapy Studio helps improve the quality of people's lives.

It is an honor to volunteer for the Art Therapy Studio. For the clients who do not have a "voice" for expression, and for those who need to strengthen their "voices" through visual art, the Art Therapy Studio provides an invaluable service. The sense of accomplishment while creating one's own masterpiece cannot be measured. Creative, compassionate, and caring...words to describe the staff of the Art Therapy Studio.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Witnessing the sense of accomplishment and pride in clients who strive to express themselves through visual art.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make certain that funding streams grow.
