Classroom art therapy project turns into Greeting Card venture
After reopening The Children’s Academy, we had to try to help students with the trauma they experienced from the recent gang violence in the community. Enlisting our art teachers, students were invited to draw then discuss their inspiration. One student’s art – 9th grader, Gardy – was so special we decide to feature it on this year’s greeting cards.
