Online Art Therapy Courses
Welcome to our Virtual College!
College for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy
What Our Students Say
A good solid professional education costs money. Be wary of courses that are too cheap. Since COVID-19, the Internet has become bloated with online courses but the quality of many of those courses is alarming.
We have an ethical obligation to deliver an education that keeps our clients safe and that upholds the standard of our profession. I am concerned that many of these online courses may produce clinicians who have no practical understanding or skill in the application of art therapy.
Working as a psychotherapist is a highly skilful profession that requires a solid theoretical background married with professional guidance from an expert. This is the reason we offer on-campus Intensives (or Skype meetings for those who cannot attend an Intensive).
Please be careful of offers for Certificate and Diploma Courses in Art Therapy that are cheap and offer no personal tuition. You get what you pay for.

Recommended Learning Pathway
While you can complete our courses online, we highly recommend taking advantage of our on-campus Intensives.
The best way to begin your art therapy adventure is with our 2-Day Introductory Intensive.
2-Day Introductory Intensive
The 2-Day Introductory Intensive is the best way to start your adventure into Art Therapy.
It provides an engaging and inspiring first taste of art therapy and is one of our most popular offerings. Along with “live” in-person teaching from Rob Gray, the learning experience is multiplied by group interaction with your fellow students. In fact, many students describe it as life-changing and career-shaping.
Our Course Bundles
While studying the Certificate and Diploma Course can be done online, the best learning pathway is to take advantage of our on-campus Intensives. After completing the online modules in your own time, attending an Intensive in an Australian city of your choice is the recommended pathway for those pursuing a comprehensive education.
Don’t live in Australia?
If you’re unable to attend the 5-Day Certificate Intensive or the 3-Day Diploma Intensive in Australia, we recommend doing the online Certificate Course or online Diploma Course and adding the applicable Video addons and/or Skype Meeting addons (see below) to enrich your studies.
If you don’t live in Australia, you can enrol in the online Certificate Course or online Diploma Course via the image links below to get started today!
You’ll need to first complete the Certificate Course before enrolling in the Diploma Course.
For those who want to observe Rob Gray demonstrate many of the art therapy techniques in real life therapy sessions, we highly recommend the video addons. For those who are unable to participate in one our on-campus Intensives, we recommend enriching the online course material via Skype meetings.
How do you sign-up for a course addon?
First choose the course you want to study.
Want to include the videos?
If you’re enrolling in the Certificate Course, pick the Certificate Course Videos. If you’re enrolling in the Diploma Course, pick the Diploma Course Videos. (You must first complete the Certificate Course before doing the Diploma Course.)
Want to include the Skype meetings?
If you’re enrolling in the Certificate Course, pick the 10 Hours of Skype. If you’re enrolling in the Diploma Course, pick the 5 Hours of Skype. (Again, you must first complete the Certificate Course before doing the Diploma Course.)
Online Introduction Course
Looking to get a first taste of art therapy? If you’re unable to attend the 2-Day Introductory Intensive in Australia, the online Introduction Course gives you a good start. This online ‘taster’ involves practical applications to ensure that you get a good sense of whether art therapy is a career path worth exploring further.
We offer the course to you at a 70% discount to reduce the COVID-induced financial pressure placed on so many families around the globe.
