Attitudinal Healing Connection: ArtEsteem

at Frick Academy

Funded by Debra Coggins and John Kikuchi

Attitudinal Healing’s ArtEsteem program introduces students to the concept of the “Self As Superhero,” encouraging them to view themselves as positive change-makers in their community. The students are introduced to environmental justice and notable environmental activists while learning visual art techniques not ordinarily available at Frick Academy, including illustration, fundamentals of color theory, shapes, patterns, and symmetry. This art and social justice program provides students with a physical medium to gain emotional literacy and re-imagine the word ‘hero’ to include everyday people advocating for positive change.
