Escape & Express
was created to serve not only Paint Parties and Classes but to serve the youth in the community by having a group called just that
"Escape & Express"
The purpose of this group is to set up in areas to allow those children that might not ever be able to experience painting ...To allow them a way to escape whatever may be going on in there life abuse, low self esteem , drugs ,alcohol,sexual abuse and bullying and too many other things to mention and learn a different way to express themselves besides the drugs , gangs, violence ,suicide and other terrible avenues that they are taking....my goal is to set up 20 easels once a week in high risk areas and invite them to come.
Have what we will call a "Paint Party "with them.
The benefits of this group are many.....
Creates self esteem, accountability,self respect , self discipline (refraining from acting out ) learn to respond not react , builds character. problem solving, goal setting , time management , respect of others, manners, social skills, communication skills, boundaries, coping skills, ability to compliment others, ability to receive compliments , to create paintings , listening skills, to be a friend , to accept praise, to help others by being the one to show new comers how we work, the skill of serving because as we grow we will be doing positive things in the area, not to mention the ability to express what is going on in a safe environment as we are here for the children to be able to feel safe.
is the key out of poverty and self harming '
