At Home Arts

The STAR Center has begun a new series called At Home Arts with Katlin and Rebekah. We understand with COVID-19, many are looking for ways to keep their children/students entertained while using every day resources.

Two of the music therapists, Katlin Ross and Rebekah Tarplin, are bringing you easy and educational ways to incorporate arts into your daily routine.

For more information on At Home Arts, please contact Katlin at We will use a variety of ways to get resources to you which will include providing links, sharing our supply list, and regularly posting to our Pinterest Page.

Our videos are posted on our Facebook Page and Youtube Channel.

    I was under music therapy to improve my focus, and it did create wonders in life. I agree with you that it could do wonders in my kids as well. There are so many ways of incorporating music in their life, and I am feeling relieved to think about the positive effects it will bring them.
