Nurturing the Seed of Infinite Potentialities in Every Child

– ART WORKSHOPS –

With no right or wrong and a variety of mediums and forms, art allows us to express ourselves without judgement, in ways we can learn from and enjoy. We believe this makes art a perfect way to promote social-emotional development in children and youth!

Each session will encourage each child’s artistic potential and sense of wonder while teaching new techniques. Participants will also engage in discussion about topics such as kindness and emotion regulation.
