Do you need ideas for low budget, therapeutic art activities? This book provides all you need to create fun and engaging activities for your clients at little to no cost.

Presented with simple 'how to' instructions, each art project is accompanied with guidance on suggested client populations and variations of materials and design to accommodate the limitations, budgetary and otherwise, that therapists frequently face. It also includes strategies and guidance for acquiring materials: extending a modest budget, soliciting donations, and sourcing recycled and natural tools. An easy reference guide for new and seasoned art therapists, this book helps to expand therapists' repertoire of projects and provides them with the means to execute them.
