An art therapy project for children from impoverished areas at the Cape of Good Hope
The Butterfly Art Project (BAP) was launched in October 2010. The Butterfly Art project offers art therapy and art lessons for socially disadvantaged children from the Vrygrond area in Cape Town, South Africa, where most children have little contact with colours and other art materials and thus unable to use them creatively. The joy of artistic creation and expression are thus impossible from the outset. The offered art classes strengthen the self-perception of the children but also their resilience to the everyday consequences of their traumas.
