The Art Therapy Institute has been working in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro City Schools with the Exceptional Children's Program for the past ten years. We would like to expand our work to support the families of our EC students as well. We are happy to announce three summer art therapy groups in June and July that are geared towards supporting the families of EC students!
