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

You can reach out to The Red Pencil by sending an email to welcome @ redpencil.org with your resume and what you are interested in doing. We will then add you to our database of arts therapists and you will then be able to receive the call-outs for our various programmes.

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 (workshops, clinical sessions…)

However, there are many other ways that you can help the Red Pencil’s cause. You can volunteer and help during our events, apply to join our team as an intern for a few months, set up your own fundraiser or of course, make a well appreciated donation.

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

Individuals and organizations can get in touch with The Red Pencil (welcome @ redpencil.org). Each request will be individually assessed. Then, our team does its best to find the most suitable programme depending on the needs of the individual.

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?

To become a licensed therapist you must earn a master's degree and fulfil post-graduate art therapy experience requirements. 

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

Here is a 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.
