Art Therapy: The Movie

Kelvin Ramirez, Ph.D., ATR-BC, LCAT

Art Therapy: The Movie is an overview of the field of art therapy through definitions and examples of what art therapy means to different practitioners and patients in a wide variety of settings. The film explores diverse ways of thinking about and doing art therapy. It shows professionals working with various populations in the United States and in other parts of the world. Art therapists and clients discuss their understanding and relationship with art therapy, the art, and the artist. Work with individuals and groups is demonstrated, sharing stories of the creative process in both personal and communal healing. These vivid tales remind us of the power and privilege of our creative voices and their potential to bridge divides, whether naturally occurring or created by human beings. This inspiring film would not have been possible without the many participants and collaborators close to home and around the world that allowed the filmmakers to tell their stories. It is beautifully filmed and edited by cinematographer Alfonso Bui.

Total Running Time: 56 minutes, 22 seconds
