Art Group for Young People

Gerald Moore Downstairs Gallery, Eltham College

NAS Greenwich is starting a new group from May offering art activities to support peer relationships using art therapy techniques for autistic young people aged 15-17.

This group will be facilitated by an HCPC registered art therapist currently working in Greenwich schools, together with a NAS volunteer with 20 years experience who is a qualified teacher. Both have DBS.

The group will take place on the second Tuesday of the month mostly at Gerald Moore Gallery, Eltham College – and occasionally at the Prince Philip Maritime Collection Centre, Kidbrooke.

Get together; relax, be creative. Parents: Come and chat in a relaxed environment with other parents.
