Study at Home with Personal Tuition
The College for Educational and Clinical Art Therapy does not just send you lessons. Art Therapy cannot be learned by simply reading books or studying your modules. We provide the individual contact with our internationally acclaimed expert lecturer that is essential for a deeper understanding and a complete learning experience.
CECAT has a long and very successful track record of online art therapy education. We are the first international institution to offer a certified course through distance education. We collaborate with prestigious independent teaching institutions worldwide to offer an educational program that goes far beyond general distance learning. Our online program is individually tailored to meet each student’s needs and elicits first-class learning results. Personal tuition with registered art therapist, Robert Gray guarantees a profound education in art therapy.
Originally from Germany, Robert is also a registered psychologist and has lived in Australia for nearly 20 years. He ensures our students receive an evidence-based training program that reaches out to the wisdom of other countries, languages, cultures, and art therapy communities around the globe.

CECAT has designed this inspiring distance education package to provide greater flexibility for international art therapy students, who choose to study entirely through distance education. Students receive each of the online modules via email (course content and syllabus) and are then contacted for one-on-one discussions of the module’s content via Zoom. This enables students to study at their own pace and without having to attend the intensive on-campus program.
Art Therapy Certificate Course
10 online modules, plus 10 Zoom sessions
Art Therapy Diploma Course
5 additional online modules, plus 5 Zoom sessions
An increasing number of international students choose to attend the intensive on-campus program if they’re able to travel to Australia, instead of meeting through Zoom.
You need a computer with internet access, a headset and a webcam. Many computers have a webcam and microphone already installed.
Currently, the best software for online video conferencing is Zoom. Sign up for free here: zoom.us

This course has been one of the most impressive and inspirational courses in psychology I have taken...
I have been a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Western Australia for 5 years and a psychologist working in a number of settings for over 20 years. I was excited to find the CECAT Art Therapy online course run by Rob Gray.
I highly recommend this course to any health professional interested in both personal and professional development. Rob is very knowledgeable and an experienced practitioner. I feel that my understanding of psychology has been deepened through contact with him, so much so that completing the One Year Certificate Course in Art Therapy, I have chosen to have supervision with him.
The online course worked extremely well due to the flexibility of times to complete tasks, the comprehensive theoretical notes provided by Rob and the experiential nature of the course where for each of the 10 modules there was exposure to a meaningful art therapy task
One of the most significant benefits was the one-on-one tutoring from Rob provided for the modules. In these discussions, Rob clarified the art therapy process and gave relevant case examples of how to apply the techniques in a therapeutic setting. This course has been one of the most impressive and inspirational courses in psychology I have taken, and I sincerely thank Rob for the enriching experience.”

Interested in Art Therapy in Your Own Language?
Rob is one of the best teachers I have come across
I chanced upon the Certificate Course on Art Therapy offered by CECAT one fine morning browsing the internet. I had been researching for several options around doing a diploma or a Master’s degree in Art therapy.
In India, this is a nascent field and I did not find anything that was comprehensive and long term or that offered material taught by a teacher with vast experience. Over six months, I did the virtual online certificate program and I was thoroughly impressed by the course.
Noteworthy things about this course are:
- The course material is practical and covers a variety of issues from Health to Drug Addiction. Each module requires one to read the material, apply the lessons learnt and discuss it with Rob. The material provided is comprehensive and includes the research and science behind the topics.
- The lessons provoke thought, personal reflection and growth. The fact is, there is little point doing the course if you are not a serious student. Each lesson forces you to dig deep and find the answers. It is profoundly healing.
- Rob is one of the best teachers I have come across. He immediately puts people at ease and is flexible on your timings for individual sessions. His knowledge of therapy and art therapy is outstanding to say the least. At the age of fifty, with many degrees under my belt, I feel no hesitation saying so. He is warm, open-minded and knows when to push you deeper. Oh yes, he can catch you easily and tell you if you did a painting in 10 minutes or two hours. I was very apprehensive doing an online course but this was the best decision I’ve made in my life.
I am now planning to enrol for the Diploma course with Rob again and look forward to learning new things about life, helping others and myself.
