We remove the stigma around mental health and believe it’s a critical component of overall wellness.

Art therapy can also help improve communication and coping skills, increase self-esteem and confidence. Our teletherapy videos are deeply engaging, evidence-based and data-driven, reflecting the latest thinking and research.

Forward-Thinking

The act of creating art can assist children in accessing emotions and feelings that may be too complicated for words or difficult to address. Creating art can be a powerful tool of healing because it helps kids to feel more connected to the world around them.

Inclusive & Accessible

Painting, drawing, and sculpting help children learn to express themselves through connecting their imagination with the physical. Because art encourages connecting the mind with the body, it has the potential to heal.
