"Expressive arts provide an experience which facilitates communication between the mind, body, & spirit. The activity does the work of prompting the client to have a 'conversation within themselves.'”

About Our Groups & Classes
At Playmore & Prosper, we aim to offer a wide variety of health- and wellness-focused groups. We offer separate wellness classes for adults & kids. Most of these groups range in number from 6 to 12 participants. For the best personal growth experience, a group of this size has been well-documented to be ideal. Several of our groups are designed for specific ages, developmental levels, diagnoses, and therapeutic mediums. You can even suggest future opportunities by filling out our group suggestion form!
Many of our wellness activities are based in one of the expressive arts. Each expressive art has it's own history, theory, and research guiding the work. Some of our wellness activities are grounded in holistic health practices.
