Parent and former nanny placement agency owner

“As a parent of a child who loves art, it was an amazing way to let my daughter express her feelings without being pressured to talk, if she wasn’t comfortable or able to verbally express her feelings at that time. Art is a means of creativity and healing in many forms. My daughter went to art classes growing up and it has helped her become a creative young lady. There needs to be more facilities for children and especially teens to be able to continue being creative in a safe environment where they can express themselves without being judged.”
