Ms. Martha Finerty

Welcome Back! 

I would liek to take this time to welcome you to the start of a new school year and introduce myself. My name is Martha Finerty (Miss. Fin for short) and I will be providing Art Therapy for your child this school year. I am so excited to be a part of the Gages Lake Grizzly team for my third year and work with the amazing group of students and families we have this year! 

My goal as an art therapist is to create an environment that fosters creativity and individual espression. Throughout the year students will engage in the creative process and use a variety of different art materials to gain personal insight and develop new skills, focusing primarily on the are making process not the end result or product of their art. 

The best part about my job is the opportunity to build relationships with the students as they explore and express their imagination in new ways and grow in their creative capacity. 

At Gages we believe taht a team approach between parents, teachers, and related service providers is an optimal way to support your child's development. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or would like activity ideas to promote carryover at home. I am excited to see all of the growth and success in our students and I look forward to an incredible year togther.
