The Healing Power of Art

My Students

I have some of the most talented, creative students, and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to be their art teacher. High School aged students are at such an important stage of their artistic development as they are discovering their own unique expression, and how they show up in the world.

Unfortunately the stressors of the pandemic have negatively impacted many of my students, and created an overall unease in their lives.

So it has been my passion to create a safe place for them, so they can take a breath from the heaviness of the world, and just create.

My Project

The pandemic has prevented many students from attending school, extra curricular activities, and has brought tangible loss to their lives. Whether big or small, loss is difficult, and these kids need a healthy way to make sense of their experience. Their anxieties, depression, lack of motivation, and boredom, can be described as grief; and that is where art can help process their emotions.

I want my students to know it's okay to feel grief right now, and if they can express that grief, it can help them progress forward.

The theme of my project "Healing Through Loss," will prompt them to paint what they are missing the most right now in their lives, or how they are personally going through the grieving process. We will discuss as a class the 5 stages of grief, and how they might illustrate that artistically. My hope is that they can move towards healing and closure for what they feel they have lost.

By donating to this project, you will provide students who are unable to attend school the supplies needed to complete their work from home. These personal paint sets will help young artists stay on track, and create beautiful works of art.

Thank you so much for your help.
