Diversity Arts offers creative programming that empowers disenfranchised youth and groups. The samples above are just some of the art experiences we offer. Workshops and activities are tailored to specific groups, goals and subject matters.
In the "True Colors" workshop participants explore bullying and its effects as they create stylized layered, mixed media self-portraits depicting positive traits which make them special and unique individuals.
ART ACTIVITY PROGRAMMING
The simple act of making art is therapeutic. Diversity Arts offers non-workshop art activities for disenfranchised and multi-cultural youth on an ongoing basis.
LGBTQ Youth face many adversities, even today. Diversity Arts offers judgement-free creative experiences through which teens can explore and express subjects and issues such as self-expression, gender identity, bullying and more.
In "Mosaic" participants create 4-panel culturally-infused self-portraits, which are later separated and regrouped with other participants' works to create multi-cultural community portraits.
