Our Journey: Expressions Through Art
“Our Journey: Expressions Through Art” is a remarkable collection of art created by children and youth who have received services at Campbell River Family Services Society from a diverse range of programs. The Counsellors at Campbell River Family Services Society often use creative means when working with children and youth, especially in those cases where there may have been a history of trauma or abuse. According to the British Columbia Art Therapy Association, “Thought and feeling often reach expression in images rather than words… through the use of art therapy, feelings and inner conflicts can be projected into visual form.”
This amazing collection of art showcasing the creations of children as young as six years of age has been made possible through a grant from the Campbell River Community Foundation and in partnership with the Tidemark Theatre and the Campbell River Arts Council.
The Tidemark Art Gallery will exhibit Our Journey: Expressions Through Art show from March 8th until the end of April at Tidemark Theatre. Gallery hours are from 12-4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays.
