Awards for Research in Art Therapy
Research is a vital part of the art therapy community, helping it to become an increasingly effective and sophisticated human care service. While topics cover a wide range of creative, developmental and/or clinical issues with various populations, all investigations involve the implementation of art in its change and growth promoting uses.
The Hester Katz Memorial Award for Art Therapy Students
This award of $300 was initiated by the AATQ to honour the memory of one of our founding members and the creator of our logo. The family of Hester Katz has generously contributed to this fund. In recognition of Ms Katz’s desire for excellence, this grant is awarded to an art therapy student for superior achievement in research.

This $300 award is given in recognition of outstanding research in art therapy. It is jointly subsidized by the Art Therapy program of Concordia University and the Association des art- thérapeutes du Québec. The award is open to both professional and student members of the AATQ.
