Art Therapy
Children in the Mosaic Group recently learned to: risk imagination and creativity, enhance self-esteem, develop awareness of the world, learn and build creative problem solving skills. The children took the opportunity to try the new skills in a supportive environment and the payoff was satisfying. Recreational Therapist, Lupe reports that the children evolved and began identifying themselves in new and different ways, continuously using the words, “team”, “group” and “mosaic artists.” Each child can embrace all of these attributes and skills which they will keep forever.
