I am a Work of Art

I am a Work of Art is both the title of this resource and the prompt given to young artists tasked with creating a piece reflective of the sentiment. As a result, the American Art Therapy Association curated a digital collection of hundreds of pieces, ranging in form from paintings to sculptures, that all demonstrate "the important role of art and creativity in mental health, wellness, and social-emotional well-being." Readers can view the collection in its entirety, or sort the pieces by age level by clicking the respective links under the introductory paragraph at the top of the page. The content is sorted into two groups: pre-K and elementary student submissions and middle and high school student submissions. While the collection was created in 2017, readers who are interested in further exploring a link between art and well-being may enjoy other resources on the site, such as the Story Library or Art Therapy in Action video series, both found under the About Art Therapy tab. The American Art Therapy Association is a nonprofit organization for art therapists, a profession that seeks enrichment through "art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience."
