Children from 6 to teens are welcome.
The Art Relief Caravan, at the Gravesend Houses in Coney Island last Saturday, is designed to help children cope with the aftermath of traumatic events. Working with a team of artists, children living in those areas of the city hardest-hit by the storm will create art healing projects.
The Children's Movement has run successful creative trauma relief programs for children and youth in New York City after 9/11, and in post-war Bosnia.
Children's art projects will focus on the theme of resiliency, with the goal of supporting their hopefulness and emotional well-being.
