Boulder Art Therapy Collective, in partnership with Colorado Youth Leadership Network, presents Art for Empowering Youth Workshop Monday, Aug. 1, 3-6pm


A 3-hour art studio workshop for youth and young adults, ages 15-24, who have
experienced system involvement, and who are interested in becoming empowered as
youth leaders in their community. Participants will use art as a way to know themselves
and tell their story in a safe and respectful group environment. Through art making,
participants will explore their authentic life experience and how it shapes who they are
as a growing leader. Art will also be used to declare their strengths that come out of
their story, as a step towards enhancing their leadership style. Participants will interact
with each other through facilitated discussions of their art and the process of making art,
and delve into how it relates to being empowered youth and young adults. Light snacks
and drinks will be provided. Space limited to 10-12 youth. Cost to participants: Free

YOUR FACILITATOR Chris DeMarco, MA, LPC, ATR, has over 20 years of experience using expressive arts with children, youth and families in various behavioral health, social service, and school based settings. She believes the children and youth who have been part of “the system” are some of the bravest and wisest, and their stories teach the world about resilience.
