We believe as an Art Therapy center it is our job to educate and provide clinical experiences for the professionals of tomorrow. Therefore we are honored to host one graduate Art Therapy fieldwork/internship placement per academic year. Interviews usually take place in late summer and only one graduate student will be chosen for this placement.

High School work study/shadow policy:

We have received an overwhelming amount of interest in providing high school students career shadowing opportunities. We regret that we cannot provide this opportunity at this time.
