Creative Tools for Self-Expression and Relaxation

In this unique expressive arts group, girls get a chance to learn the basics of several art forms while discovering new materials, making new friends and having fun!

Girls can explore their personal art interests, delve into artistic adventures or simply use art for relaxation and enjoyment. 

Participants will be provided with opportunities to engage in creative activity while obtaining individualized attention and support in a nurturing, supportive environment.  

Materials may include: clay, yarn, crochet, fabric, markers, pastels, beads, plaster, model-magic, acrylic paints, photography, recycled and/or natural materials, wood and mixed media.

No art experience necessary!
