Art & Music Therapy

In partnership with Westchester Creative Arts Therapy, we offer weekend therapy in the mediums of Art and Music throughout the year.  Art therapy involves the use of creative techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, coloring, or sculpting to help students express themselves artistically and examine the psychological and emotional undertones in their art.  Art and music therapy often enables us to learn more about nonverbal messages, symbols, and metaphors which can lead to a better understanding of common and complex feelings and behavior.
