school art therapy

although chicago's public school system is the third largest in the country, only one CPS school employs a full-time art therapist. this means that staff, students, and parents are constantly confused about my role at the school. so i wanted to share this School Art Therapy website, which i've found does a really good job breaking down the functions of an art therapist within a school.

also, here is a link to
a community arts and culture studio called Artworks, which was the setting of my first-year internship.

Good find. unfortunately, this question had a really complicated answer:
What will it take to make art therapy a routine service in schools?
