Working with a partner, who can be a friend, sibling or parent, the program provides a safe and inclusive environment for creative language that instills self-worth, ability and respect.
Each child's unique cognitive age and level of attention span is considered on an individual basis through a discussion that involves the parent. In the past, some younger and older children have participated in the program.
Along with developing new art skills, participants will have the opportunity to have their artwork displayed at the culminating Kindred Spirits Exhibit every May.
