Kids Therapeutic Music and Art Workshops

Oasis House is holding a (free) 3 day Music and Art work-shops for children 3rd, 4th and 5th April 2024 in Oasis House from 9.30 am to 2.30pm each day. Each workshop will be facilitated by a trained music and art/colour therapist and food is provided on the day. The aim of the workshops is integration and for children who have experienced domestic abuse and/or homelessness but we welcome children from all backgrounds.

 

Music:

The children participating will experience a new way of relating to their peers and the facilitators through music and make new positive connections.

They will explore how to express complex and difficult emotions through music / sound in a safe and contained space.

They will be able to access a playful part of themselves and have fun.

They will gain increased understanding of their own responses to trauma (somatic awareness) and will learn techniques to help them to manage their feelings.
