BECOMING AN ART THERAPIST
Art therapists are clinicians with master’s-level or higher degrees trained in art and therapy that serve communities in different settings. guided by ethical standards and scope of practice, their education and supervised training prepares them for culturally proficient work with diverse populations., everyday, art therapists support their clients’ mental, emotional, and physical well-being, including children experiencing behavioral challenges, such as autism spectrum disorder; people and caregivers in medical crises; victims of violence or other trauma—from military servicemembers to student survivors of mass shootings; older adults struggling with dementia or alzheimer’s disease; or anyone that needs help coping with life’s challenges..

The most deeply felt heartbreaks are sometimes the hardest to talk about. Traumatized people who have difficulty explaining their feelings in words often work with an art therapist, who can help them express and process their emotions in a visual way.
Art therapy is a clinical profession. Art therapists are mental health care providers with master's degrees who use artwork and art analysis to discover the root causes of a client's distress and to address psychological wounds.
Here are some key facts to know if you're interested in becoming an art therapist.
What Art Therapy Is and Who It Helps
Art therapy is not simply the process of engaging in a pleasurable creative endeavor and entering a state of "flow," says Meera Rastogi, professor of psychology and art therapy at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning . Although art-making by oneself for the sake of fun or self-discovery may feel soothing, it isn't art therapy, explains Rastogi, who has a Ph.D. in counseling psychology and a master's in art therapy.
To count as therapy, an introspective artistic activity must be guided by a trained art therapist who provides guidance along the soul-searching journey, she says. "They have a knowledge base, skills and training to work with the materials and the image in a way that goes much deeper than you would do on your own... So there's lots of great work by artists working in hospitals, by volunteers working and doing art programs, and that is not art therapy."
Images created before or during an art therapy session provide a starting point for scientifically informed conversations about subconscious thoughts, mindless behaviors and other subtle influences on a client's life that he or she may not otherwise recognize.
When art therapy clients make pictures that represent their identity, circumstances or dreams, they can – with the help of their therapist – gain clarity about their wants or needs and decide what they should do next.
Art therapists show clients how to cope with sadness and find hope in spite of adversity, and they assist people from all walks of life. "An art therapist can help many different clients, from 3 year olds to seniors, with or without mental disorders," Youhjung Son, a registered and board-certified art therapist in Maryland, wrote in an email.
People who are interested in helping others, fascinated by the human psyche and like the idea of "using creative expression as a way to heal" should consider a career in art therapy, she says. "An art therapist would need to be compassionate, understanding, patient, positive-minded, and confident in themselves as well."
Getting an Art Therapy Degree and Board Certification
Earning status as a board-certified art therapist through the Art Therapy Credentials Board, Inc. is a rigorous multistep process.
These are the key steps aspiring art therapists must take to obtain needed credentials:
- Earn a master's degree in art therapy or a master's in a related field, in which case extra education would be necessary. Supplemental coursework would also be needed with an art therapy degree from a program that is not approved by the American Art Therapy Association or accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. A list of approved and accredited programs is available online .
- Complete 24 credits of art therapy classes and spend at least 700 hours in a supervised art therapy internship.
- Take 18 credits of studio art courses at the undergraduate or graduate level.
Art therapy master's programs usually last at least two years and may take as long as three-and-a-half years to complete. They combine art-focused classes and psychology courses.
After receiving a master's, a future art therapist can seek provisional credentials and start working under the supervision of an experienced therapist, who can serve as a mentor. The goal is to gain sufficient clinical experience — at least 1,000 hours — to qualify as a registered art therapist, though the amount of experience needed varies depending on a person's academic credentials. A handbook with detailed instructions on becoming registered is available from the credentials board.
A formally registered art therapist may work independently and can become board-certified by passing a national exam. Though board certification is not mandatory, experts say it increases an art therapist's credibility and marketability .
Art Therapy Jobs, Salary Ranges and Employers
The most common salary range for U.S. art therapists in 2021 was $50,000 to $79,999, according to a recent demographic survey of American Art Therapy Association members. Meanwhile, 5.9% earned six-figure salaries, survey data shows.
Roughly 88% of art therapists in the survey reported working 40 hours or fewer a week, and their most common workplaces were independent practices, outpatient mental health clinics, social service and community mental health agencies, and art centers and studios.
What It's Like to Be an Art Therapist
The combination of visual art and talk therapy can encourage patients who are especially nervous, guarded or reluctant to relax and share information with their therapists, Rastogi says. Honesty and transparency are beneficial because understanding between a patient and therapist aids psychological healing and increases the likelihood of emotional breakthroughs for patients.
"They become more open to other ideas and possibilities," she says.
While the intensity of verbal therapy can overwhelm some patients, that problem can be overcome by integrating art into therapy, Rastogi says. "The work is powerful and amazing. It is much quicker therapeutically than I have observed with verbal therapy."
Aspiring mental health caregivers who appreciate art can integrate that interest into their practice if they become an art therapist, Rastogi adds.
"Even though the work is hard, people enjoy it more than in traditional therapy, and I think part of it is you get this physical representation of the work that you've done, whereas in verbal therapy – okay, I feel better – but as soon as I leave the therapist's office, I may or may not be able to maintain that feeling," she says.
The physical object produced in art therapy can comfort patients, Rastogi says, serving as a tangible reminder of their progress.

An Art Therapist’s Job Description
What is a professional art therapist and what do they do.
A professional art therapist works in the mental health field. He or she is dedicated to helping both adults and children of all ages with their mental, physical, and emotional health by incorporating art making into the patient’s counseling sessions. Art therapy is used to treat stress, depression, low self-esteem, behavioral problems, and to resolve conflict.
Other Problems Treated with Art Therapy
- Substance abuse and addiction
- Family and relationship problems
- Mental illness
- Domestic violence and sexual abuse
- Disability and illness related to emotional and social difficulties
- Cognitive, physical, and neurological issues
Professional Art Therapists Work in the Following Settings:
- Medical and psychiatric hospitals and clinics
- Mental health agencies
- Halfway houses
- Homeless shelters
- Domestic violence shelters
- Schools and colleges
- Correctional facilities
- Nursing homes
Art therapists need to be compassionate towards their patients, great listeners and even better observers. They are generally emotionally stable, empathetic, patient, kind, have an understanding of artistic media, great interpersonal skills, and a good insight into human behavior.
Education and Salary
Professional art therapists typically must have a minimum of a master’s degree and a post-education supervised experience. The art therapist’s career has an average job growth outlook and the salary will differ depending on location, field of work, and experience.
School Art Therapists
School art therapists help students enhance their abilities in a school setting by working with teachers, parents, school counselors, and school psychologists in order to obtain referrals for students to receive art therapy. Once treatment is approved, the art therapist will work with the students to establish goals and objectives.
Medical Art Therapists
Medical art therapists work with teams to help patients suffering from a variety of illnesses or issues. These teams typically include psychiatrists, doctors, psychologists, physical therapists, and nurses. They work together to ensure that the patients get the best possible treatments for their specific needs.
Working With Children vs. Adults
When working with children, art therapists usually need to be a bit more patient than they do with adults. Children aren’t as mature as adults and can sometimes have a more difficult time expressing themselves. A sweeter, more playful approach may work better with children, who are often more open to trying new things.
On the other hand, adults have had more time to develop than children. In most cases, adults know how to express their feelings better than young children – however, adults can sometimes be more closed-minded than children.
U.S. vs U.K. Art Therapists
In order for art therapists to practice legally in the UK, they must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. They also must have taken an approved postgraduate level training course. In some cases, the trainee must provide a portfolio of his or her artwork.
Although the requirements of becoming an art therapist differ in the US and the UK, the job responsibilities are typically the same. Art therapists are there to help all types of people with many different problems. They are patient, kind, and compassionate. The salary ranges are different from location to location, but art therapists are typically in the business because they love to help others.

Completing the art therapy program gave me the understanding of the healing journey which I incorporated throughout many years of writing.
In the years I spent as a caregiver, I learned greater understanding of people, their illnesses and their needs. Through these and other life experiences I expanded my divine qualities of patience, compassion and love, which now enables me to be a better therapist. I also continue to read self help and metaphysical material to broaden my wisdom. I feel I am fully equipped to return to the field and continue the work of helping people- the main reason why I took up the study of art therapy.

Hi, it would be good to add the Australian market to your viewpoint here & other countries for a more global perspective. I’ve recently completed a post-graduate advanced diploma in Art Therapy in Sydney, my insurance covers me for 6 weeks of overseas work & I still consider myself a professional, without an MA, given my years of ‘life’ experience. Whilst the academic & theoretical foundations are essential for ethical practice, I also feel there’s a human element around compassion & unconditional positive regard for our clients, which cannot be ignored. When working with children, depending on the country, you may need a certificate in children’s services or the appropriate NVQ conversion qualification, plus the relevant checks. Might also be worth adding in definitions of Art vs. Play, vs Expressive Arts Therapy into the discussion.

- 30/30 WOMEN
I was born and raised in a working-class city, Elektrostal, Moscow region. I received a higher education in television in Moscow. I studied to be a documentary photographer. My vision of the aesthetics of the frame was significantly influenced by the aesthetics of my city – the endless forests and swamps of the Moscow region with endless factories, typical architecture and a meagre color palette. In this harsh world, people live and work, raise children, grow geranium, throw parties and live trouble, run a ski cross. They are the main characters of my photo projects.
I study a person in a variety of circumstances. We blog with friends with stories of such people. We are citizen journalists. In my works, I touch upon the topics of homelessness, people’s attitude to their bodies, sexual objectification, women’s work, alienation and living conditions of different people. The opportunity to communicate with my characters gives me a sense of belonging and modernity of life.
My photos create the effect of presence, invisible observation of people. I don’t interfere with what’s going on, I’m taking the place of an outside observer. I’m a participant in exhibitions in Rome (Loosenart Gallery), Collaborated with the Russian Geographical Community.
