For a select group of children the summer is not over yet! They have two exciting weeks of day camp to look forward to at Heartsong in White Plains, NY. Since 1992 Heartsong has been providing music and art therapy to children with special needs and to their families. Heartsong's nationally recognized program provides a creative outlet for children who might be limited verbally or physically. Heartsong states: "This is accomplished by using music and art in its many forms and styles to nurture an individual's emotional, physical, sensory and cognitive development."
Through a generous grant from ArtsWestchester I will be teaching art at Heartsong's two week summer camp starting on Monday August 19th. I am excited to share my passion for art with the campers! I will be teaching a variety of art projects that will utilize different art materials and techniques. Through the art process the children will have an opportunity to socialize, work on new skills, and build their confidence and self-esteem.
