Expressive Art Therapy Summer Institute

The Prescott College Expressive Art Therapy Summer Institute brings masters in the fields of Expressive Art, Music, Dance Movement, and Art Therapy together with students and professionals for an unparalleled, intensive learning experience. Participants gain experiential knowledge of theories, applications, techniques, and methods.

The internationally attended Institute is the core foundation for students in the Expressive Art Therapy program at Prescott College. The Institute also provides opportunities for those who want to learn more about the field of Expressive Art Therapy to gain first-hand knowledge and experience. Participants gain knowledge and skills in applying Expressive Arts in work, educational, and community settings. All practitioners and interested community members are welcome.

“The Prescott College Expressive Art Therapy Summer Institute provides a remarkable opportunity to become immersed in the expressive arts, among participants from around the world, guided by renowned leaders in the field. Over my two weeks there, I was most struck, however, by the way that this all took place in such a lovely, thoughtfully created, and supportive environment. I left feeling inspired, deeply nourished, and grateful to have had this experience.”    Jessica Irving, participant
