A Tribute for Vija B. Lusebrink
Vija B. Lusebrink, 97, celebrated art therapist, professor, author, artist, colleague, and mentor passed away on June 12.
Her passing is sorrowful for countless art therapists across the US and abroad. Her impact on the world of art therapy is expansive and profound. It is amazing that a person who dealt with so many challenges as a young adult evolved into a master art therapist, professor, and author.
As of June 8, 2022, California will be celebrating
Art Therapy Week of Civic Engagement in October.
Community opportunities to celebrate to come.
