The Art Room
The children at Orchard Meadow are able to benefit from the methodologies and principles of The Art Room.
The Art Room is a charity aimed at 5 - 16 year olds who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. There are currently eight Art Rooms in schools in Oxfordshire, London and Edinburgh offering art as therapy to increase children’s self-esteem, self-confidence and independence.
They have demonstrated that in a caring and creative environment the most challenging children can ‘learn and achieve through art’. Their methodology has been tried and tested in both specialist and mainstream schools with positive results.
