9 June 2019 – Art for Good organized an Art Therapy workshop for the children and their siblings from RDSS (Rare Disorder Society of Singapore) at Bukit Batok HomeTeamNS. The children were initially gathered to play laser tag, but it was arranged so that the groups had an opportunity to experience some creative art expression through art-making in between the sessions. The purpose of the workshop is to assess and observe the children to see who might require art therapy or develop artistic abilities. Some of the children were able to express themselves through art, by drawing their experience playing laser tag. This workshop was conducted by a certified art therapist.
RDSS (Rare Disorder Society of Singapore) has partnered with Art for Good to provide emotional support through Art Therapy. RDSS will sponsor 75% of the cost of art therapy fees. Each session a home-based art therapy session, as we understand the difficulties of transportation for some of the families. The session is 1 hour per child at $120 per hour. Families only need to pay $30 per session. Only applicable for members of RDSS.
Transportation and Art Materials fees are sponsored by Art for Good. If the families would like to get their own art materials for the children to continue art-making on their own, a recommended art material list can be provided upon request.
The Art Therapist will provide individual monthly progress reports for the children, which will track their progress and offer relevant recommendations, where needed. For enquiries for art therapy for your child, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
