Student Art Therapy Association at FSU (SATA)

art ed

The Florida State University Art Therapy program and the Student Art Therapy Association (SATA) work together to provide our classmates with social, academic, and emotional support. In addition, we facilitate community outreach events, support student professional development, and host an annual Spring Art Therapy Workshop with a guest lecturer from the field of Art Therapy. We meet once a month for community service and fund-raising events to encourage educational and professional opportunities for our members. We’re happy to provide interested students with more information, meeting times, and membership details!
