Art Therapy in Action: Coping Creatively in Arlington County

Arlington County is launching Coping Creatively, an art therapy group
for children and kids of all ages in the greater DC metro area who are
coping with chronic illness, like cancer, kidney or heart disease, or
diabetes. This dynamic group is for kids who want to have fun and
explore new recreational modalities with others who are facing similar
challenges.

The expressive art therapy groups are led by Rachel Schreibman, a
master’s level Art Therapist. The group will engage in visual arts,
drumming, cooperative games and more, with the goal of reducing stress,
learning new expressive outlets, and connecting kids and families coping
with illness.

The group meets at Lee Arts Center located at 5722 Lee Highway in
Arlington, VA. The cost per class varies based on the duration of the
group, and financial assistance is available. The dates of the program
are flexible; currently the group meets Fridays from 4 – 5:30pm,
however, the days and times may change based on interested participants’
availability. Interested families with kids of all ages should contact
Rachel Schreibman at 703-228-1534 or rschreibman@arlingtonva.us to learn
more!
