I learned about The Art Therapy Studio simply because it was the only place offering a collage class at the time. A dozen years later, not only do I continue to enjoy the various collage offerings, I have learned that the 'therapy' in art is a beautiful thing for all of us! Friendships have flourished, skills have been honed, and there is a wonderful anticipation to being with a supportive group of people on so many levels. It's very special when you take a class to learn something new and it opens a whole new world to you.

All I wanted was to learn to do collage....and I ended up with years of warm and generous friendships. This art class is therapy in so many ways. While we stretch our creative possibilities, we share our lives with our classmates. We are open to each other's offers and insights. We pull our collective backgrounds into play while growing as individuals along the way. We have learned that , indeed, we Can Do. We have learned to applaud our successes. Whether we come into the class suffering in some emotional, physical, or mental way....or come into class on top of the world...we're all in it together. Everyone is there to work with you. And , you know what?, the art we produce is darn good too!

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

...the lift in my heart when I look forward to attending class. I'm eager to get to work...but just as eager to help someone along where I may. I've learned to be patient and to stretch my ideas of art. I love the child like feeling of discovery that Marty Stitt brings to her classes.

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

make sure the Board is aware of fundings that trickle down to the little people in the classes. That's where the real action is...the real success.

As a dance/movement therapist, I was interested in experiencing a different creative arts therapy modality. Although I am enrolled in a strictly non-therapy class, a women's painting class, it has been very therapeutic for me. I am learning to "let go" with various types of paint, ink and paper. The teacher is very supportive to all of us, no matter what our talent or lack of talent is. The atmosphere in the class is cordial and non-threatening.
The Cleveland Art Therapy Studio serves an important function in our community; both for those who have difficulty verbalizing their problems in traditional psychological therapy and for others who just want an art experience.

I can just "let go" of my worries and enjoy doing something completely different. The Cleveland Art Therapy Studio is an oasis of calm and enjoyment for me.

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

want to see the physical studios enlarged and more art therapists engaged to work with people both in the studio and in the general community. The work they do is very necessary in the frenetic world in which we live.

As a physician and art lover, I was able to experience first hand the wonderful sense of inner peace and lifting of self esteem their classes and workshops provide. The Art Therapy Studio offers an invaluable service to many who otherwise would be truly isolated. They are truly deserving of ongoing recognition and funding.

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

Their workshops, classes, art shows and benefits

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

Improve marketing so the public is more aware of the organization
