D.ART.S – Art Discoveries and Solutions was created last year and has been a great building block at Young at Art. It is a great opportunity for adolescents to feel comfortable around other peers talking about issues that face them today, while using art to open the barriers that keep those feelings locked inside.
I encourage you to read the two letters of support for this program from a high school guidance counselor and the Manchester Superintendent of Schools. Jackie Czerniak and Melanie Brown are both teachers and Jackie has a degree in art therapy. They really connect with their students and develop a nice friendship. The projects they work on are just stepping stones for an exhibit they will put on during the year.
D.ART.S meets every 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month from 6-8 PM. At the moment, it’s only $5 per class! There are more details on the website. I implore you to check out the details and get your teen signed up today!
