Why The Arts?
The arts do not depend on academic education or other prerequisites. Anyone can participate.
The arts are experiential and non-judgmental. There is no one correct answer.
The arts develop the ability to see the world from different perspectives, encourage taking positive risks and allow discovery of hidden skills and talents.
Art allows you to think differently, so you behave differently, so that you can get different results. To me, that’s the definition of rehabilitation.
