Learning, healing, and connecting through art

Youth Expressive Arts is a program designed to help youth discover and connect with their identities through artistic self-expression in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Today’s world may seem confusing to many adolescents, one in which trying to find any semblance of a “true self” may appear difficult. Low Entropy believes that engaging in art while having fun with peers will help to lighten the load and serve as a means to self-discovery. As a creative medium, art provides an opportunity to try on different identities to see which ideas resonate. Your imagination is the only limit.

Youth Expressive Arts is free and accessible to all because of the generosity of our donors.

Building confidence from within

The Youth Expressive Arts program doesn’t just seek to heal–it seeks to motivate, challenge, and transcend boundaries in order to start building up healthy degrees of self-worth, self-knowledge, and ultimately, confidence in who we are as individuals.

Diving into different worlds

Each session will last an hour, and will focus on a type of art (e.g., painting, mask-making, drawing, tiles) and a daily theme in tandem with self-reflective questions. During these sessions, participants will learn to better understand themselves and others by exploring their headspaces through art.
