Fall Program Underway

Our fall Creative Arts Program for Youth with Intellectual Disabilities is well underway, with 11 participants, as many wonderful volunteers and 5 music therapy students!  A lively group.  The story follows the adventures of a Donkey Prince and a Brave Young Girl on their quest to retrieve a magic apple belonging to the prince’s mother, The Queen.  They need to go through fire and water together, outsmart the Wild Men and get the apple back to the Queen to save her from death.    Here are water-colour paintings of the Flowing River.painting "the flowing river"

Last week the participants had to build a ring of fire to protect them from the Wild Man, and later they painted  Fire.
