Emmy Lou Glassman, MA, ATR-BC
Acknowledged professionally by The Art Therapy Credentials Board, Inc., Emmy Lou Glassman has lectured, published, and facilitated local and national workshops, on the positive role that art therapy can play in enhancing lives. In 2017, she was recognized and honored by the American Art Therapy Association, receiving the prestigious Distinguished Clinician Award-Adolescent Services.
Emmy Lou crafted and facilitated a unique high school program in the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) system. This program, integrating art therapy theories and practices into the public school framework, encouraged individual growth and self-expression in an open studio setting.
During that time, Emmy Lou served as a clinical field supervisor for The George Washington University, by providing art therapy student interns with first-hand experiences. In addition, she has been an adjunct faculty instructor for both The Corcoran School of Art + Design and GWU graduate programs.
Since transitioning from FCPS, Emmy Lou established and continues to maintain, a private practice which provides art therapy services for clients of all ages, as well as professional supervision for new and established art therapists in the field.
An artist herself, Emmy Lou has exhibited her work in galleries and shows and enjoys mixed-media exploration above all. Her vision for Circle Art Studio is that it offers varied art experiences to a wide community who come to listen to their creative voices, learn to thrive on discovering inspired ideas, and are enriched by working side by side in discovery.
