Art Therapy

The art therapy program at the Kilmer Center aims to provide students with the opportunity to engage in the art process, within the safe confines of a professional, therapeutic relationship. Each student’s sensory, visual, and motor-planning systems are evaluated and materials are adapted to promote optimal exploration and expression. Students work to increase awareness of self and others; cope with personal stressors; enhance problem solving skills; increase choice-making and, enjoy the life-affirming pleasures of making art.
