At Maryvale, art therapy utilizes the creativity of art to explore children's feelings.

It's become quite effective especially in group settings, when a recent community loom enabled children to expand their imagination, growing as a team, trusting each other to construct a beautiful and intricate art piece that featured words of expression.

Painting, filmmaking, writing, music, photography and poetry, among other art forms, have been tools through which Maryvale’s children have expressed a sense of worth and self-discovery.   

It is hoped that through this creative process they may help reconcile their painful past and visualize a future filled with hope.
