Benefits of Group Art Therapy for Kids
Art making in a supportive environment helps children to express and share who they are and build healthy self-esteem and positive self image.
Group sharing of artwork and working together supports practicing social skills and growing confidence in social environments.
Making art supports expression of thoughts and feelings. The art also acts as a communication tool to help kids grow their verbal expressiveness.
