How will we overcome our obstacles?
Apply for scholarships!Get part-time jobs!
Work hard.

Art and music are not skills that magically occur overnight. They require time and patience.
If you drew many branches, that means that you are a very detailed person.
A hole in the tree could mean that you have past trauma that you can't get over.
Long roots mean that you are stubborn, and strong willed.
In order to graduate you must complete a major project or thesis as well as 800 hours of practicum.
Upon completion of the program. I graduate as a professional art therapist and receive a diploma in art therapy.
Work in a hospital preferably with children.
* SickKids offers a creative arts therapy program
