CHILDREN'S ARTS CENTER
"Life is the art of drawing without an eraser" -John Gardner
"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life"
The Children's Creative Arts Center is both a place on-site and a virtual (on-line) space where all children, not just those with behavioral health issues, can combine one or more of the creative arts with imagination and creativity to do what children do best...use play, creative writing, art, music, drama, carpentry, building materials, and a variety of other crafts to express themselves, to share their talents and developing areas of expertise, to take refuge from stress and affect dysregulation, and to communicate their hopes and dreams and wishes and wants and idealism. Sometimes, we adults can learn a great deal from what they have to say this way.
Call (724) 733-2928 to arrange for individual, family, or group time in the Children's Creative Arts Center. On-Line postings of their creative works can be found on this website under the BLOGS AND CREATIVE ARTS tab.

Supervised visitation or parent-child reunification activities;
Organized recreational group activities such as 4H Club meetings, scout meetings, DFC Kids-for-Peace music practices, small recreational group classes, children's book club and writing club meetings;
