Express Yourself Club at CIP Brevard

CIP Brevard art project- Spiders

Each CIP location provides unique opportunities for students to express themselves artistically and develop their unique talents. These optional classes enhance CIP’s core values of social executive functioning.

Here is one of the cool pieces of Halloween artwork created by the Brevard Center students under the direction of Steve Selpal, artist and CIP art teacher.  The spiders were made by students out of newspaper, masking tape, and paint in our Express Yourself club, and the web was created out of rope by Steve.
