Art sessions at Rebecca School focus on building relationships through play and involvement in a variety of art experiences. With each interaction the therapeutic dynamics of art media are utilized to support each student’s core developmental capacities, creativity, and emotional processing. Through emphasis on process over product, healing components of art materials are used to establish rapport, deepen avenues of relatedness, and encourage communication. In order to maintain and grow this dynamic program, art activities across all capacities are guided by each student’s individual profile. Art activities can focus on sensory exploration, fine motor skills, visual-spatial processing, and stress reduction. Art groups can also address skills relates to sharing space, turn-taking, and symbolic ideations, to name a few.
