Professional artists work with the children and teens, giving them opportunities to express themselves creatively through projects in the visual arts, music, and dance. Indigenous artists often provide experiences in native cultural arts and traditions.
The purpose of Arts-Kids is to facilitate integration of the emotional, creative and spiritual parts of the self while the child is still in the developmental process. Groups are facilitated by tribal leaders who have been trained in group dynamics, the four stages of group development, and how to manage childhood behaviors.
