Utilizing art, music, dance, drama, poetry, media, culinary arts, and other creative outlets, participants have the opportunity to learn through self-discovery and artistic involvement the value of releasing feelings associated with trauma, loss, illness, or reduced capacity and engage in alternative healthy behaviors and experiences.
Workshops offer experimentation with media not commonly found in a classroom setting and provide the healing benefits of the artistic process. Individual and group projects are chosen to promote creative problem solving, strengthen individual and social skills, and provide appropriate controlled and guided sensory stimulation.
We serve youngsters who are affected by radical changes, not only in their own lives, but also in the lives of those they love.
