The AATA is the nation's leading voice for art therapy. Members are comprised of clinicians with Masters-level or higher degrees trained in art and therapy that serve diverse communities in different settings, from medical institutions and wellness centers, to schools and independent practices. They are credentialed mental health care professionals who care deeply about the communities they support, helping to advance people’s mental, emotional and physical well-being.

We believe in creativity for life, from childhood through adulthood, and share in the American Art Therapy Association’s commitment to expand access to mental health through art-making. Together, we strongly believe that art is for everyone—and the creative process, with the guidance of a professional art therapist, can help support and improve people’s lives, whether they are struggling to overcome illness, violence or trauma, or just managing everyday challenges. 

The collaboration will help expand access to this incredibly powerful mental health profession that engages the healing power of art as a core tenet, using Faber-Castell’s art materials in treatment.

We want to do our best to ensure that as many people as possible have access to opportunities for creative experiences.

Through our donations, and your support as brand loyalists and beloved customers, we believe we will do our part in supporting the AATA to build creative confidence that lasts while simultaneously strengthening our mission of enriching lives through creativity and self-expression.
