Why is everyone coloring? Art therapists know that coloring relaxes overworked brains. It’s like meditating, but with a visual aid to help you stay focused and quiet your mind. This eclectic book brings together artwork from 50 professional art therapists in a collection that invites you to experience a moment of self awareness. The hand-drawn images are accompanied by interviews with the artists and a short “right now” assessment to learn more about yourself. Skeptics and coloring enthusiasts alike will be inspired by this uniquely useful book which gives us a peek inside the head of the therapist for a change!

Art therapy is a mental health profession focused on helping people of all ages harness the power of art to improve their well-being. This collaboration began as a way to explore the actual therapeutic impact of coloring, and how it is similar to art therapy, but also how it is different. Now it's evolved into a movement! Spread the word. #ArtTherapyIsReal.

Who are The Real Art Therapists of New York ?

We are a group of professional art therapists who live and work in the New York area. The self-published coloring book and series of Pop-Up Coloring Bars are just the beginning of a movement to encourage the public to choose art therapy as a treatment option when seeking mental health services. Our mission is to raise awareness about the practice of art therapy and help consumers make educated decisions about where to find the professional services that will lead to improved health outcomes and greater customer satisfaction. Our strategy includes: public service and community building events in the form of drop-in Coloring Bars, and other offerings that give people a chance to meet real art therapists, to try art making that is therapeutic by design, and to learn more about adult mental health and the wellness benefits of art.

What is a “Coloring Bar”?

A FREE drop-in oasis for adults to relax and reboot with coloring. The bar is stocked with the very best art supplies and tended by a professional art therapist. Hang out, improve your mood, and take home your own artwork.  Learn more here.
