Art Therapy is a method that allows students to be creative and positively express themselves. Art as a whole is a confidence builder because it is a very accepting therapy practice in which students participate in one time per week. By learning about different art mediums, students are able to develop fine motor skills, work on sensory issues, and learn to stay on task and follow directions.
Since early 2014, the Secondary class started creating washer necklaces to sell at our annual Legacy Gala. Not only have we continued creating these amazing little gems, but our Secondary Life Skills classroom has created a small non-profit venture called “Pendants with Purpose.”
