Art With Heart–Art Buddies

on April 27, 2008

This weekend, I took a four hour Art Buddy training session with Art With Heart.

Art With Heart’s mission is to empower youth in crisis through therapeutic books and programs that foster self-expression. One of their journal books, Chill and Spill, is a fabulous resource to use with teens and tweens.

The Art Buddy program trains artists, writers, and designers to volunteer with kids in their community for a period of time (say 3-6 months, two hours a week) in order to help youth access their creativity in order to foster self-expression.

If you live in Western Washington and you are an artist/writer/designer, I’d highly recommend taking the Art Buddy training!
