Visual Arts

Through drawing, painting, sculpture, collages, murals and using recycled materials, vulnerable youth can find release from their traumatic experiences by exploring the visual arts for self-expression. At the end of the programs, the kids have lasting souvenirs that they can share with their families and friends. We also provide them with opportunities to publicly exhibit and sell their artwork.

Introduction to Art includes fun arts activities that teach children how to use a variety of supplies to create decorative crafts items. Introduction to Fine Art gives instruction in drawing, painting and sculpture, which culminates in an art exhibition.

Two of our most popular programs are Create A Mural Now and Create A City Now, which incorporates “trash” into building materials so students can design their own cities that might have a theme, such as good health or a green environment. Children love using their imaginations to express themselves in these programs.
