Students are involved in art in numerous ways at Rivendell School. Many students study art as an elective subject either through their mainstream school or through SDEHS. 

Art therapy takes place throughout the school. Students have access to a variety of media and can express themselves in the way that is conducive to their therapy. 

The Lawson and Yaralla programs have access to an Art Therapist who works with the students either individually or in a group. Students have access to therapy both during and after school hours.

Walker students have access to the Art Therapist outside of the Learning Centre times.

The Paterson and Sulman students access their Art Therapist once a week during school time. There are group and individual sessions that take place.

In 2016, RIvendell Students participated in the inaugural Storyweavers project where they created numerous art works. This culminated in an evening launch where the Rivendell boat house was utilised as a gallery.

Students can select the Art workshop on Fridays if they have an interest.
