Exploring & EXPRESSING
With The Arts
Using a wide-range of materials,
students at CARE make art to explore their creative self freely in an warm and inviting atmosphere.
The creative process at times allows ours students to communicate without speaking, making art therapy a non-threatening time of sharing for each individual.
