M.A.R.K. — Making Art Real Kool
Hosted by Gigi Michelle
Our resident artist has left plenty of art in the links below to encourage you to help yourselves.

Art changes the way we feel about ourselves and others.

Art helps us to develop and strengthen creative skills, build self-esteem, social emotional skills, growth-mindset, and self-expression. Stimulating imagination and creativity through self-expression is at the heart of enjoying the process, more than the product.

Art challenges us to tell our stories, our cultures, and our beliefs through various mediums of expression.
Art HEALS us and heals the world!
Art is good for our brains and hearts.

We will be working on developing art skills around line, shape, and color.
We will be creating art that represents our journeys, emotions, stories, and self-advocacy.
