Creating art is a way of expressing the inner experience. The creative process used in creating art is used in therapy to work through and resolve emotional problems and improve a person’s well being. Art is an effective tool in the therapeutic process.

Art Class is taught weekly by Abby Sivy at Fire Mountain. Each week the kids work on a different art project. As they delve into a project, they are expressing themselves through their painting, sculpture, collage or whatever art project they are working on. It is a very free way to work through their emotions. To see these incredibly creative kids produce their masterpieces and even be proud of them is amazing!
