At the end of 2019 Karin Dom launched an art therapy group for children with Down Syndrome, funded by the Life with Down Syndrome Foundation. The group consists of 4 children who will attend art classes with Karin Dom specialists by the end of 2020.
Art therapy is a way of expressing the emotional or physical states of children through art, which has a positive impact on personal growth and development. It enhances sensory motor skills, including eye-hand coordination and provides sensory stimulation. The activities have therapeutic effect and help children to feel their own identity, to show preferences, to make choices, to have a sense of their own achievements outside the box. When children are given the opportunity to express themselves, they achieve a true sense of their own identity. All this helps them to build themselves as a conscious person.
In addition to all this, our little cuties have great fun with our sunny colleagues – Vesi Tincheva and Iliana Dimitrova, who include them in art challenges with different techniques and materials!
