Nature of Art Therapy:

Connecting Art, Culture and the Natural World

It is the artist in each of us that connects art, culture and the natural world to the life of art therapy. As our world becomes more digitized and one dimensional, we are paying attention to the sustainabilityof art therapy within our local communities, the move to technology without removing the essence of art materials, and the inclusion of multicultural perspectives. Art is a way of knowing how to continue ourquest to stay at the intersection of technology, ecology, and culture, while being mindful of our art footprint. The art therapist in each of us looks to put art at the forefront of this connection and bring our knowing to those we work with and ourselves.
