Local art therapy business Artplay announces its new enhanced offering, Artplay Plus. Artplay has been offering individual emotional wellness sessions to kids for more than five years and during that time, owner Liz Tomko observed that these kids need more well-rounded services.
Artplay Plus, with more offerings for kids’ wellness, will serve clients at a neighboring suite at the same complex as Artplay, which is located at Camelot Square, on the northeast corner of 12th Street and Missouri Avenue.
Artplay has been successfully conducting sessions to help kids with issues, such as anxiety, sadness, fear and anger, and now Artplay Plus will broaden this offering to family sessions and educational support. “We want kids to succeed at not only at home, but also at school,” says Tomko.
The best way to achieve this goal is to help the child individually, at the same time as supporting the family unit and offering tutoring. Together these offerings help reduce anxiety for children so they can be happy kids in all areas of their life.
Tomko and Traci Brown facilitate individual art therapy sessions to teach kids self-regulation skills, while Linda Gray assists families in creating effective parenting plans for home and Elizabeth Rowley makes tutoring fun for kids.
Artplay therapists have collaborated to offer the “Artplay Plus Program,” which encompasses individual sessions and family therapy sessions for 12 weeks.
“On top of these sessions, and included in the cost, we establish a relationship with the child’s school, give them a free weighted snake and even do a follow-up session three months after completion,” Tomko explains.
Artplay will offer summer camps for the first time, as many parents have requested. In June there will be a camp for 3-4 year olds and in July for 5-8 year olds. To request full information on these fun, feeling-based art camps, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. You also can request to receive the monthly eblast, which announces group events.
