Why Choose Lewis & Clark?

Why Choose Lewis & Clark?

Social justice, equity, and access are the core values of the graduate school and deeply integrated throughout every aspect of the art therapy program. Our students choose Lewis & Clark’s art therapy program for those values, as well as the small cohort model, classes that are taught by experienced scholars and practitioners, and an unwavering desire to use art to make a difference.

    Art making has been a natural inclination since childhood, as has my love for people. Learning how to support others through the magic of creation is an honor!

    “Pursuing art therapy never felt like a choice; it has always felt like more of a calling. Once I became privy to the option of pursuing a masters in this field, I knew it was what I should be doing.”

  • Kathleen Steele-Puma, Art Therapy '21

    “As an art therapist, transparency and genuine adherence to self-reflection require an understanding of the implied freedoms to make choices that otherwise remain elusive to people of color and marginalized communities.”
