Art Therapy for Children

Participants  will learn to use ART as a therapeutic resource.  Students will use ART as a creative tool to express, communicate, heal and grow.  The focus will be on the therapeutic value rather than the finished art project.  A variety of materials will be used, pencils, markers, paints, clay and more.  Projects will be based on individual needs.

 * Fun Painting and Drawing for kids is on
Mondays from 5-6 pm.
