Therapeutic Art Classes

Among the services & classes offered by Savannah Hope Affiliates is a therapeutic art class for children of all ages on Fridays after-school Oct. 3-Dec. 5, 3:45-4:45 PM.

Therapeutic art improves well-being and confidence in children. Classes are based on the premise that self-expression can be used to address emotional problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, and increase self-awareness. Children naturally communicate through art and play. Therapeutic art classes can give them a non-verbal way to face challenges.

Savannah Hope Affiliates is partnering with a favorite kids’ spot – Scribble Art Studio – to offer a unique class, giving your child an opportunity to express themselves in a nurturing environment.

Class will run for eight weeks Oct. 3 to Dec. 5. No classes on Halloween October 31st or Thanksgiving break November 28th. Cost $275. Class size is limited to 6 children.

When it comes to children or adolescent therapy at Georgia Outreach, the parent and therapist work as a team. The goal being that the therapist will serve as a resource to parents, as extra support in helping children during transitions. Georgia Outreach strives to provide an environment that children are eager to return to.

Georgia Outreach also offers couples counseling, whether you’re married or dating. Such therapy can be useful even before there’s ever an issue. “If you are having a “great” relationship you can make it better,” said Georgia Outreach therapist Ashley Richbourg. “If you find the right therapist, they will not point out what is wrong with you, but should focus on what is working and how to make the positives shine even more.”

During talk therapy for individuals, the therapist provides a non-judgmental, let-it-all-out, retreat-type session for individuals.

For SouthernMamas readers, Georgia Outreach offers a $20 discount per session on any private pay client who starts sessions in February. Mention you read about Georgia Outreach on SouthernMamas to receive the discount. Georgia Outreach is a SouthernMamas sponsor.
