Sample Art Therapist Cover Letter

An art therapist cover letter is the best way for a prospective employee to display his or her expertise in the area of art. Be sure to let the hiring manager know what you can do, such as help people express their emotions, desires, and concerns through the medium of art. The more specific you are to the focus of the company you are targeting, the more likely it is that you'll get the job. Therefore, all art therapist cover letters should include a reference to the applicant's training, experience, and enthusiasm for the work.

Ms. Alison Brooks,
Owner and Manager
Brooks Art Center
462 Simpson Street
Any Town, USA 99999

Dear Ms. Brooks:

According to a posting I read on JobBankUSA.com, you're currently in the market for an art therapist to work part time at your studio. I would like to fill that position. It's exactly what I've been looking for since I finished my training in art and art therapy at Beaumont College in Eastman. I particularly like to work with individuals with post-traumatic syndrome and with young people who have been in homes where they experienced neglect or abuse. Art is a powerful way to unlock feelings and assist people in their recovery of a normal life.

Art therapists are important members of the healing arts profession and I'm honored to be one of them. If you'd like to meet me in person to discuss this position, please call me at 222-222-2222 anytime of the day to arrange an appointment that best fits your schedule. I hope we can meet soon and that you'll find me the perfect candidate for the art therapist opening you have at your center. I appreciate your attention to my cover letter and resume.
