ART THERAPY + HAPPINESS PROJECT 2014
An International Creative Community with Art Therapists Cathy Malchiodi (USA) and Janet McLeod (New Zealand)
The ART THERAPY + HAPPINESS PROJECT was so popular in 2013, we're planning a new version for 2014. This is a unique opportunity for exploring art making and well-being; no art [therapy] experience required! However, if you are an art therapist or helping professional and are seeking continuing education credits, you are eligible to obtain 6 CECs by completing a companion course, ART THERAPY AND POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY. Art therapists who require a certificate of completion for the Art Therapy Credentials Board (ATCB) may contact us for more information on how to obtain continuing education for participation in the Project.
Registration is open for the 2014 PROJECT; see below for Early Registration and Regular Registration. We are planning to open the course for participation in late February 2014, but by registering early you will be able to enroll at a lower fee. The course will stay open throughout the rest of 2014, giving you plenty of time to enjoy monthly activities, downloadable materials and regular opportunities for a variety of art swaps with participants around the world.
