Transforming lives through art and music

Our art therapists use a variety of different art materials to help children and young people communicate in a totally new way. Art therapy is especially helpful for children who find verbal expression difficult.

Who benefits from Coram's art therapy?

Children who have been adopted in London, East Midlands and Cambridgeshire are helped to find new ways of expressing their emotions and building self-esteem.

Young People who have been excluded from mainstream education and young offenders are supported through art therapy to cope with difficulties that may affect their life chances.

Parents are supported to gain a deeper understanding of the issues their children face through regular video-feedback from the sessions and meetings with art therapists.

Schools Teachers see children become increasingly receptive, and build self-esteem and resilience to cope with the challenges they face.
