Create paths for healing through art.
Art is how you express yourself. It’s how you channel emotions in a positive way. At Lesley, transform your passion for art into the knowledge needed to help others.
Explore your artistic identity and hone your skills in drawing, painting, sculpture, and more. Study psychology and mental health counseling. With our reputation for pre-professional training in the world of art therapy, you’ll learn what it takes to make a difference in people’s lives.
Throughout your studies, you’ll develop an understanding of healing with the guidance of practicing art therapy clinicians. Intensive studio courses in Lesley’s College of Art and Design will challenge and inspire you as an artist. You’ll examine subjects ranging from abnormal psychology and studio-based art therapy to painting and photography.
Everything you learn you’ll apply through internships in Cambridge and Greater Boston. With the help of our expert faculty, you’ll gain valuable experience working with children and adults in a variety of settings, such as social services agencies, childcare programs, or specialized school programs. You’ll build your confidence, cultural sensitivity, and compassion, and graduate ready to make an impact.
