Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The goal of the Family School is to develop effective parenting skills in primary caretakers. The model used is based on the assumption that parent education is most successful when parents come together as a support group to problem solve and learn from each other.
The Art Center offers residents a positive, creative, and safe outlet to express their struggles, triumphs and celebrations through visual, performing and other art forms. It provides not only a passageway to creative expression, but for those who wish to advance professionally, the Art Center provides the skills and motivation leading to educational advancement and careers in visual arts. The Art Center is structured as an informal open studio in which residents are first encourages and gently directed to find their own form and style of artistic expression.
