We are very fortunate to have an experienced Art teacher. Ms.O studied studio art at Stetson University
40 students at Freedom Elementary successfully completed our 10 week program and presented their final masterpiece to family, teachers, and sponsors.
Our students did a lot of group activities and learned the importance of teamwork. This included respecting others, even if they didn't agree. They learned the art of compromising.
Rock painting was one of the many activities our youth enjoy doing. With this activity they learned how far a kind word could go!
For their final piece of art, each child painted a canvas about what Payit4ward means to them!
Making vision boards was a great way to discuss the importance of setting goals. Every child needs to understand that the sky is the limit if you work hard and make the right choices.
We are looking forward to working with another great group of youth!
Our goal is to help our youth find their inner creativeness. We are working on expressing feelings through art rather than violence or negativity. We teach life skills through art and work on team building activities.
Classes are currently in session!
We work closely with Volusia County teachers and local schools to provide resources and create a better environment for students and give them the opportunity to give back to the community.
