Arts Therapy for Children and Adults

While Lakewood’s Beck Center is commonly known as a cultural gem in our community, many are unaware that they have exceptional Creative Arts Therapy programs for children and adults with a variety of physical and mental disabilities. Classes offered at the Beck Center, and at a variety of local schools and nursing facilities, explore healing through creativity. Participants learn improved communication skills, motor and coordination skills, emotional wellness, social interaction skills, and greater self-respect and confidence. The program has nearly 5,000 people participating weekly. Our grant in 2014 provides nearly 500 hours of therapy throughout the year.
