FAQ

1. I’m a licensed arts therapist. How can I be involved with The Red Pencil?

You can reach out by sending an email to welcome @ redpencil.org with your resume and interests. You will then be added to our database of arts therapists who we work with for our various programmes.

When we have a mission which requires the expertise of an arts therapist, we send out a call for suitable skills and availability. We then review the applications, interview the shortlisted candidates and make a selection based on the requirements of the mission, especially in relation to expertise in working with the target population.

2. I’m not a licensed arts therapist but I’d love to be involved with the Red Pencil. How can I contribute?

Only licensed arts therapists can take part in our arts therapy programmes (missions, workshops, clinical sessions…)

However, there are many other ways that you can help out the Red Pencil cause, either by volunteering to our events, doing an internship in our offices or of course by making a donation.

3. I know a person / a group of people who could greatly benefit from arts therapy. What can I do?

In Singapore, both private individuals and organizations can get in touch with The Red Pencil (welcome @ redpencil.org). Each request is individually assessed and we do our best to find the most suitable programme depending on the needs that are expressed.

Elsewhere, local organizations who already have a psychosocial programme implemented and who would be interested in incorporating arts therapy can contact the Red Pencil (welcome @ redpencil.org) for more information on possible ways to collaborate.

4. How does one become a licensed arts therapist?

All the arts therapists that the Red Pencil partners with are certified, meaning that they have a degree in fine arts, psychology or social work and have completed a Master’s in Arts Therapy.

Here is an updated list of Arts Therapy Master’s degrees around the world.
The Red Pencil also offers scholarships for individuals interested in pursuing such a degree. More information here.
