Elise Wheatley, MA Intern
Elise is an elementary school art teacher who is in the final stage of earning a Masters in Counseling specialized in Art Therapy from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. She recieved her Bachelors of Science in Art Education in 2014 from Armstrong Atlantic State University.
For the past 7 years of teaching art, Elise has worked closely with special education programs to provide support. She began a sensory summer art program for students who participated in extended school year programs in Clayton County. She focused on working with children who have behavior disorders, autism, are blind and/or deaf, and have mental delays. When focusing on teaching, she recognized the healing power that art has for students and wanted to gain the skills necessary to use art to facilitate healing for all of the students she taught. It is Elise’s hope that by adding a focus on mental health into current art education she will be able to teach the whole child and give them all the tools necessary for a bright future.
