In 2011, I was really excited to have Favicards created for The Art Therapy Alliance to help spread the word about this growing community dedicated to art therapy and social media. Throughout last year and earlier this year, many Favicards traveled to several places across the US, in Canada, Australia, India, and Singapore to art therapists and art therapy students who wanted to share their work and connect with the Art Therapy Alliance community. Check out their stories and images here on the Art Therapy Alliance’s Pinterest board dedicated to this project.
It’s time to share the Art Therapy Alliance Favicard love again!
This collaboration uses the power of social networking and community members’ creativity to showcase individuals and groups who want to share their Art Therapy Alliance Favicard and highlight their work, passion, or cause.
