Carol Lark Art Therapy Award

The Carol Lark Art Therapy Award will be awarded to a second or third year SIUE Art Therapy masters student who, through utilization of art therapy research, art therapy interventions, or arts based projects or initiatives, has demonstrated an exceptional commitment to engaging a community and/or to addressing a community need.

The student may be nominated by an SIUE professor, an on-site practicum supervisor, another SIUE art therapy student, and/or any clinical professional who came in contact with the student and witnessed his or her commitment to engage with the community through the field of art therapy. After nominations are received, the award recipient will be selected by SIUE art therapy faculty. Student recipients are expected to participate in the College of Art and Design Honors ceremony in the spring semester.

Nominations must include the nominator’s name and affiliation, e-mail address, the name of the student nominee and a statement describing the student’s work and what s/he has done to qualify for this award. Nominations should be turned in to Megan Robb, via e-mail at, or mailed to her at the SIUE Department of Art and Design, Campus Box 1774, Edwardsville IL 62026-1774.
