The objective of the program is to provide young participants with a fun and enriching positive experience, focusing on the pleasure of creating. Then, promote the free and spontaneous expression of the person, accompany him through his process of expression and creation in a safe environment, a space of welcome and empathetic listening. Attention is placed on the personal creative process and not on the result, respecting the pace and limits of each, without performance pressure.
Art-therapy and its benefits
Art therapy is a therapeutic accompaniment approach that uses artistic materials, the creative process, image and dialogue. (AATQ)
This method offers several health and mental health benefits:
- Assertiveness and self-esteem
- Emotional regulation
- Decreased anxiety
- Feeling of empowerment
- Development of the social link
One session includes around ten workshops (one 2-hour workshop per week) for a group of 10 participants.
No prior artistic talent is required (respecting everyone’s pace and no competition or performance pressure).
The program takes place at the CAP following health instructions in this pandemic context.
At all times (except Christmas and summer vacation period).
Prices (for the whole group, equipment included):
- For a session of 10 workshops: $1500
The Cap sur la relève program is supported by our presenting partner, the Caisse Desjardins des Versants du mont royal, through the Community Development Fund.
