The Darte method has its roots in The Art Room model: art as therapy sessions in a warm, safe and stimulating environment, where positive reinforcement plays a central role.
The artistic creation is used as the transforming therapeutic vehicle, and the art work is an important longlasting representation of success. The environment of the Darte Sessions empowers the estabelishment of positive, trusting relationships, as well as experimenting and learning social and emotional skills. The artistic projects also promote learning some contents of the national educational curriculum.
This is a very personalised intervention model, with a good adults to participants ratio. The artistic projects made in the Darte Sessions are always planed regarding the individual needs of the Darte Students, as well as the group needs and dynamics.
