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.

    “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.”

  • Matthew Eveleigh, Art Therapy ’21

    “I see social justice as active efforts to work towards less of a gap between the concern for profit and concern for people, no matter who they are or where they come from.”

  • Nicholas Keen, Art Therapy '20

    “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.”
