Art therapy for children can be very beneficial, especially at this time where many kids are emotionally affected by the pandemic and many refugee kids from war trauma.
Art Therapy is popular in schools and hospitals due to its healing and behavior management potential. Children who take part is art therapy have a chance to express themselves about topics that may be too difficult to vocalize. Whether drawing, painting, or writing poetry, the expressive therapy can increase confidence and self-awareness, relieve stress, or provide a coping mechanism for children who have emotional conflicts.
Sign up for this program. This class will also accommodate the underserved children in our community with developmental problems or speech disorders.
The class size is very small and is only on first come first served.
