* Self-cohesion, awareness and appreciation for one’s strengths and uniqueness

About Art Therapy

Art-making in a safe and therapeutic environment is a powerful means to express and explore towards healing and growth. Art therapy supports the development of a cohesive, confident personality, enhances skills to manage and regulate emotions such as anxiety, frustration and phobias, and facilitates the development of creativity and positive social skills.

For children, expressive arts offer a fun and relaxing way to ease stress and irritability, to discover hidden treasures and celebrate uniqueness. The shared experience of expressive arts groups develops positive communication skills, engenders a sense of community and togetherness, and develops understanding and empathy for others.
