Artist of the Month
ArtWell Group Exhibit
December 7 - January 12, 2014
Public Reception: Saturday, December 7, 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Main Line Unitarian Church is pleased to show the artwork of young people from ArtWell. Through collage, masks, paintings, poetry, and more, students share their hopes and dreams for themselves and their communities. The public is invited to an opening reception on December 7 from 3:00 to 5:00 in the Fireside Room where ArtWell staff, students, and teaching artists will share their poetry, artwork, and stories of transformation.
ArtWell awakens dreams and inspires growth in young people and their communities by nurturing creativity. The program engages young people in self-reflection and creative expression to discover and honor their strengths and those of others.
By fostering creativity, enhancing communication and literacy skills, ArtWell helps individuals from diverse cultures and faith traditions deepen their understandings of themselves and their community and to ultimately reduce violence and increase peace within our city and region.
ArtWell has worked with more than 350 public and private schools, congregations, and organizations, helping over 28,000 people create lasting solutions for personal achievement and social change in their communities. Over 85% of program participants are residents of low-income neighborhoods in the greater Philadelphia area.
ArtWell lifts up the voices of those unheard, helping individuals work together to build stronger communities.
