“A timeless work that remains a classic Art Therapy film” — Frances Anderson, Ed.D., ATR-BC
Author, Art for All the Children: Approaches to Art Therapy for Children With Disabilities

This film tells the story of an exploratory art program in a school for blind children with multiple disabilities. Exceeding all expectations regarding their abilities, they express powerful feelings in and through their art. We learn how adults can help children grow in independence, mastery of materials, and the articulation of their own ideas through art therapy. Although these youngsters have many disabilities, the principles and approaches demonstrated are applicable to work with all children.
