Art Therapy Workshops at The Natural Baby
Art Therapy for the Spectrum, Thursday October 6, 5-6pm.
Join us for the first class in a two-part series! In this session, Meg will give an overview of art therapy as an intervention and how it can be particularly beneficial for children on the autism spectrum. She will also provide helpful tips and applications that parents and their children can practice at home. For anyone looking for services/interventions for the children, or for anyone interested in learning more about art therapy, this will be a great class to attend!
Bonding through Art, Thursday October 13, 5-6pm.
In the second session, Meg will be facilitating a parent/child bonding group! Parent and their child (ages 9 months-preschool) are invited to participate in a fun art session that focuses on strengthening emotional bonding and attachment. All art materials will be provided. Please register a week in advance so that we can have enough materials for you and your children!
