An art therapist is a person who is trained to help children and adults express their feelings and work through issues. These professionals use the creative process of making art, such as drawing, painting, and modeling in clay in order to facilitate communication and healing.

Artists can get paid for their advice on a variety of subjects such as art history, the restoration of paintings, sewing clothes, etc.
