Healing Our Past Experiences
The H.O.P.E. project offers free art classes through the use of our profits and generous donations from grants and our Patreon Campaign. We hope to help kids with a history of abuse find creative outlets for the pain, anger, and confusing emotions surrounding the experience of being betrayed by adults or peers in their lives. This is not art therapy, it simply allows students a safe place to express emotions often bottled up with no “acceptable” place to go. The ‘canvas’ is that place, creating alongside peers. If you are a SpEd facilitator, school psychologist, DHS case worker, or Foster Skills Trainer, please email April about the possibility of adding a student to any existing art class for kids.
