Exceptional Children’s Art Therapy Art Show
March 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join the Art Therapy Institute to celebrate the AMAZING work and AMAZING artists of Exceptional Children’s Art Therapy Program during the 2nd Friday Artwalk, March10, 2017 6-8PM.
The Art Therapy Institute provides art therapy services to students through the Exceptional Needs Program in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro City school system. Students are generally seen in small groups, and our goal is to provide positive experiences for them by challenging them with new sensory experiences, increasing their ability to communicate in a group atmosphere, providing opportunities to gain a sense of mastery and flexibility through the process of artmaking, helping them identify and respond to different emotions, and giving voice to their inner selves through the art. The students are encouraged to be playful, curious, and tenacious in their artistic process, and the process itself is emphasized over the end product in our work with them.
