The Learning from COVID 19 Experiences team is currently seeking artworks by art therapists. Submitted artworks should represent art created during the pandemic. Accompanying artists’ statements should reflect upon the roles that art-making experiences have served during pandemic times.

The project is coordinated by the Florida State University Art Therapy Program in collaboration with International Partners including the National Association for the Development of Art Therapy Science and Practice Art Therapy Association of Russia. The exhibits are a part of the larger project which will address the significant mental health consequences of the global COVID 19 pandemic and will explore effective art therapy methods for supporting resilience among youth and families. Professional exchanges of US and Russian art therapists, mental health professionals, and educators will be facilitated to meet these aims.
