Sheltered in Art

Art is a wound turned into light
Georges Braque (French artist).

The term “sheltered” describes the safe space art creates, allowing children to express themselves through their drawings.

“Sheltered in Art” is a program created to help establish a one-on-one relationship with children in foster homes. 

The program is an 8-week course that will provide children with plenty of art skills. The program includes many art techniques. Each class has the potential to make a long-term impact on creating a safe shelter for children to find self-expression through art. Each color, line, canvas, and paint will be a starting point in cultivating dreamers.
