Event Information

Art therapy is a distinct treatment for autism and can be an alleviating activity!

About this Event

Art therapy helps mitigate symptoms, while also channeling autistic behaviours into an expressive, creative outlet. It promotes communication, emotional growth and sensory integration while also fostering social interaction in a fun setting.

Art is a natural language for children. It can help them make sense of and express their thoughts and feelings and improve coping. Through the process of creating art and working with an art therapist, a patient can:

  • Explore their feelings
  • Process emotional conflicts
  • Build self-awareness and increase self-esteem
  • Reduce stress and anxiety
  • Use metaphor and symbolism to express themselves

Classes will take place at Jack Miner Public School located at 79 Road 3 E, Kingsville, ON N9Y 2E5. This program will run Monday evenings 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM beginning January 13th, 2020 - March 2nd, 2020.
