An arts-based classroom allows for three core developments: agency, critical thinking, and vulnerability. As students engage in the process of creating, they learn to take purposeful action and to recognize their agency. The arts also raises questions.

Throughout it all, the creative process challenges students to step outside their comfort zone, helping build a foundation of trust between students and counselors.
