The Art Therapy Institute is hosting our annual Exceptional Children's Art Show for our kid artists with special needs from the Chapel Hill / Carrboro schools. at the Art Therapy Institute 200 North Greensboro St Suite D-6 ( Upstairs in Car Mill Mall).
Please join us to celebrate and admire art work made by students in the Chapel Hill Carrboro School's Exceptional Children's Program and students at Just Right Academy.
We provide art therapy services to students through the Exceptional Needs Program in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro City school system. Students are generally seen in small groups, and our goal is to provide positive experiences for them by challenging them with new sensory experiences, increasing their ability to communicate in a group atmosphere, providing opportunities to gain a sense of mastery and flexibility through the process of artmaking, helping them identify and respond to different emotions, and giving voice to their inner selves through the art. The students are encouraged to be playful, curious, and tenacious in their artistic process, and the process itself is emphasized over the end product in our work with them.
