Every child should be provided with a safe and nurturing space to explore, learn, and grow through creative expression. During Cathy’s Kids, our trauma informed arts program, children will be encouraged to express themselves authentically through various forms of art. Children can look forward to activities such as chalk pastel drawings, metal impression art, abstract painting projects, drama workshops, and more. By tapping into their creativity, children will:  

  • Develop a greater sense of self,
  • Build confidence,
  • Deepen an understanding of their emotions,
  • Create new friendships, and 
  • Cultivate self-compassion.
