  1. Hello Christine! Im Katelyn Shriver from Hastings. And im a senior in High School. And im looking to start a career in Art Therapy. The closest place i have from me for an art therapist is in Omaha. And im just wondering how you got started and even if maybe sometime i could even job shadow you and understand more of how it all works. Hope to hear back from you! Thanks Katelyn!

    • Hi, Katelyn. To become an art therapist, you need to have a master’s degree in art therapy, or in a psychotherapy discipline, such as counseling or social work plus additional coursework in art therapy. Then you need to get 1500 to 2000 (depending upon your degree) supervised clinical hours by an art therapist to become registered. There is also additional supervised clinical hours and an exam to take to become a licensed mental health practitioner (LMHP) in the state of Nebraska. It’s a lot of work, but I have found the career to be extremely rewarding.
      If you’re thinking about what to do after high school, and are interested in this career, I would suggest that you major in art and minor in psychology for your undergraduate degree, or do an art/psych double major. I’d also recommend that you do paid or volunteer work in some sort of human services field, just to get your feet wet in working with people. Also, I’d recommend taking art courses in a variety of media (at least painting, drawing, and sculpture), and photograph your best work, so you can build a portfolio for applying for graduate school.
      If you would like to ask me more questions, or come to Omaha to meet me, give me a call at (402) 517-1504.
