Our art sessions are FREE to all participants through our non-profit partner, Next Generation Academy.
Our Art for Self-Expression program is designed to help young people develop tools for emotional intelligence, self-expression, empowerment, empathy, and peer support.
Sessions start by listening to music from our upcoming concert program. Our guides, who are trained in art therapy techniques, teach the students how to interpret each song, and how to work through any emotions that may come up.
The groups are then guided through exercises to create paintings based on their own feelings and experiences. This helps young people explore self-expression in a safe and supportive environment, overseen by a licensed therapist.
All participants will receive two complimentary tickets to the upcoming concert program. They will also be invited to show their finished paintings in our Youth Art Gallery in the lobby of the concert.
