“The painter has the Universe in his mind and hands.”
― Leonardo da Vinci
Art is so much more than just drawing or painting. When we engage physically and creatively, we are activating alternative parts of our brains that are not used for thinking and speaking. Creative activities present an opportunity to generate new ideas, express thoughts, feelings and emotions, and make sense of the world around us. Creative processes can help to relax and focus ones mind. Art also supports communication and can help to develop fine motor skills.
swara participants have access to a wide variety of artistic materials they can use to bring their imaginations to life.
Our creative sessions include:
- Craft work
Participants learn new skills and techniques while expressing their creative vision.
Performing in front of peers and public audiences enables participants to build confidence, work as a team, explore and develop creative skills, and find joy in self-expression.
The talented swara Songbirds Choir rehearse once a week in preparation for regular public performances at local functions and events. We also have karaoke for those who enjoy singing in a more casual, social environment.
swara participants of all abilities are encouraged to showcase their talents at our participant-directed Variety Concert that is hosted at swara every year.
