ARTreach Holds Vision Board Workshop at Krause


ARTreach, a nonprofit in Katy, TX, has as its motto “We use the arts to change lives.” ARTreach is a frequent visitor to Upbring Krause Children’s Center, where they lead the girls in dancing and art workshops. Recently they held a “Vision Board” workshop, created to inspire the girls to make their desires a reality. ARTreach artist Melba Lee told the girls that they “… can draw into their lives the things that they desire.”

The activities and projects that Melba creates have been referred to as “Heart Art.”  The girls decorated their boards and collaged pictures and words that visually represented what they wish to experience in their lives. They were excited to share their boards with each other and the workshop proved to be a powerful tool for increasing the girls’ self-esteem – giving them focus and direction along with a visual reminder of those things that they expect to draw into their lives.

Previously, ARTreach held a week-long Spring Break Camp at Krause that included a collaborative t-shirt design project, a lesson in screen printing and learning a hip-hop dance routine. They put together a fun video from that week at Krause – take a look!
