Art Therapy Studio Partners with Lifeworks in Annual Spring Art Show

Lifeworks & AGS STudent Painting

To embrace our mission, vision, values, and deep-rooted beliefs in a call for social interest in action, Adler Graduate School Art Therapy program partners with the Lifeworks Organization to help facilitate a sense of purpose and belonging through art therapy.

The partnership supports art therapy field experience opportunities for our Adler Graduate School art therapy students and provides art therapy services to participants who are challenged by developmental, cognitive, and physical disabilities. Through the partnership, the participants benefit from community connection, a safe space to be creative and express themselves, and provides a sense of belonging within a supportive and encouraging environment that enhances personal strengths and abilities.

For the past several Fridays, Lifeworks has utilized our Art Therapy Studio to work with these individuals. Our students have been able to provide hands-on experience to the participants. The artistic pieces created by Lifeworks’ artists, in collaboration with the Adler Graduate School’s Art Therapy Department, will be featured at the end of the series in a gallery show featuring the artists.

We would like to welcome all our students, alumni, and surrounding community to this annual spring art show Friday, May 18, 2018, from 10-11 AM. The show will be an open house on campus.
