The Art Therapy Association of Oklahoma (ATAO) is a professional organization for art therapists in Oklahoma, and an affiliate chapter of the American Art Therapy Association. 


ATAO is founded on the belief that art making is healing and life enhancing; that creativity benefits the human condition; that cultural proficiency is essential when working with children, families, and communities; and that professional integrity and competency is of utmost importance when serving the public. 


Our mission is to provide a safe place for meaningful connections between people who share an interest in the therapeutic use of art making and creative expression in Oklahoma.


Our vision is to engage in the progressive development art therapy and use of expressive therapies in clinical practice.  We provide continuing education, training, and workshops with the aim of advancing the field of art therapy and to facilitate networking and collaboration among art therapists, students, and professionals in Oklahoma.
