About Us

Art therapy is a growing field which involves creative outlets for personal and emotional support. It’s an evidence-based therapy practice that focuses on improving well-being and emotional health through expressive arts projects. There have been countless studies proving the benefits of expressive arts and art therapy in many populations and we’re excited to share art activities with a wide range of people in the Baltimore community.

With the unique opportunity of partnering with the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Kennedy Krieger Institute, Believe in Tomorrow Children's House, Ronald McDonald House, Keswick Assisted Living Center, Gilchrist Center Baltimore, and Karina Cafe, Believe in Art focuses on serving the community through art therapy to alleviate levels of pain and anxiety and provide emotional care. Members are closely involved with patients and family members by facilitating arts and crafts projects. Service trips occur weekly, biweekly, or monthly depending on the community partner. The service opportunities expose our volunteers to various levels of patient contact, as well as provide experience in both the medical and artistic fields. Another facet of the club works with spreading awareness of art therapy within the Hopkins community through arts events, club collaborations, and on-campus events. Everyone can benefit from art therapy, whether it's patients at the Hospital, people with disabilities, our volunteers, or undergraduates on campus.
