Facilitated by professional visual arts coaches and supported by peer mentors, these interactive workshops use creative mediums such as painting, illustration, printmaking and collage to assist participants with abstract thinking, sensory regulation, self expression, social communication and fine motor skills.

Pre-requisite: Being enrolled in or completion of Chill Foundation.
