While there are many workshops that are available, what sets Little P.I.C.A.S.S.Os apart from the rest is that the focus of our workshop is based on art. While we will integrate more traditional methodologies in our group ( e. g., role playing, playing games, having snack etc…), we are ultimately trying to teach and practice the necessary life skills needed to be successful in the world through art making.
