Review for Art Expression, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been working as an Art Facilitator for Art Expressions for the past five years. I am lucky to work primarily with children in various homeless shelters throughout Pittsburgh and the surrounding regions. I spend time with children developing not only their art skills, but, more importantly, their sense of self and sense of others. I have the opportunity to create and engage the children in meaningful art directives specifically designed to generate: positive self-esteem and self-worth, understanding, and empathy for each other. Art Expressions thrives on creating a healthy, non-judgmental atmosphere where all are welcome. Connections created through art yield lasting positive results, and I have had the honor to watch these take shape and grow. I continue to hold Art Expressions close to my heart; as I experience, first hand, the remarkable impact art can make in a person’s life.

Review for Art Expression, Inc., Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have the honor of working as an Art Facilitator for Art Expressions. I have had the opportunity to work closely with Angela as well as other art therapist for the purpose of creating inclusion for children in schools and shelters. I have primarily worked with children in shelters, and it has been a very rewarding experiences. Art expressions was created and continues to be defined by the connections art is able to create for children of all different backgrounds. I am always excited to bring this to life in the workshops. I have the opportunity to provide creative directives that always have a positive theme. Self-esteem, acceptance, growth, understanding, empathy and support for one-another are themes that I use as a starting point for an art project. Art can be such a catalyst for conversation, and it always amazes me how much artwork created inspires conversation among children and adults. The connections I have seen made in the workshops have been inspiring, and without Art Expressions, might never have come to light. In my opinion, this non-profit is easily a 5 star organization.
