Therapeutic Art Class for Kids

Ongoing - Dates to be annouced. 

Art and music therapy are proven to be useful because of their inherent ability to surpass language barriers and achieve therapeutic gains in a safe environment. The program has received many accolades from staff and students. We are working to partner with many of the Boys & Girls Clubs locations in Martin County as we work to recieve funding to do so. 


Therapeutic Arts Outreach:  A4AC Clubs “Share Arts” Program

Through Share Arts students gain leadership skills as they showcase their talents and share their arts education with others. Pictured here is former president of the Pine School Club, Kevin Paul. Kevin  pioneered this outreach together with teacher sponsor, Adison Lax. The kids they served have had access to arts education opportunities, and a real connection with gifted arts students. Our hope this year is to expand these programs to all of our school clubs.
