|About||Allyson Root, M.P.S is an art therapist based in Tel Aviv. She offers individual and group art therapy and creativity workshops.|
Creativity was my first language. Ever since I was a child, my most effective expression came in the form of art.
My path lead me to study art therapy at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Art therapy is a dynamic and unique field that allows me to use my passion for creativity toward helping others. I believe that everyone has the innate ability to create art, regardless of background or perceived ability. Our creative nature is what makes us human, and expressing fully leads to happiness and fulfillment.
My work as an art therapist has lead me all over the map (literally and figuratively). I have spent extensive time in developing countries including Ghana and Nepal, bringing arts to marginalized communities. These experiences confirmed to me what I already knew: that art is universal.
I now work as an art therapist in Tel Aviv and am continuously amazed by the power of art to evoke transformation. I work with children and adults of all ages and backgrounds, in all mediums.
