New Opportunity for OT Students-Expressive Arts Group

Written Expression, Verbal Expression, Music, Visual Expression, Movement…. all ways for our young men to share what is on their mind and what they are feeling with others.  Residential Counselors Nick and Dunston started a weekly evening group for some of our residents.  Starting with exploring poetry and written expression, they  moved through the various forms of expressions. They share in the group through various projects while also keeping a journal about the experiences. The first group completed their six week session by creating spray paint art murals that will be hung in the student dining room.  The group is offered through Ocean Tides expanding Programs and Activities efforts lead by Elana Levizon, Director of Programs and Activities.
