Everyone does it – making art with kids is fun. This course will ground the experience in childhood development and meaningful art exploration, and will offer hands-on experience in art-making for participants. We will tackle the issue of the “fine line”: what’s the difference between playing with art and kids, and doing art therapy with kids? This course is appropriate for people who work with or want to work with kids. You don’t have to be an art therapist, but you could be!
