THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM

Our goal is to teach visual arts to socioeconomic youth ages 12-18 years old by providing access to free art education courses through sponsorship, donations, and grants. Enhancing the creativity in a child that will extend to many other aspects of their life. We help foster innovation skills by encouraging them to take risks in creating and expressing themselves.

 

"Art promotes healing. Unlike exercise, which works your body, or meditation which clears your mind, art-making accesses both mind and body to promote healing. Every time you sit down to write, draw, paint etc you are using mental processes in a physically engaging way." - Henry Ford Health 2018
