Creation Nation

What? An Expressive Arts & Social Skills Group


Who? ​Kids ages 8+ who enjoy self-exploration through the use of the creative process.


What is the group about? ​The group facilitator will provide a safe and structured environment for members to discuss their process, practice social skills, and explore emotions. We will use different art materials to create projects that group members can take home with them.


  • Listening, following directions, and experimenting with art materials for creative development.

  • Discussion, sharing, and identifying common themes to explore.

  • Increase confidence through art-making and relationship building.

  • Practice solving problems and making decisions with peer support.
