As a holistic and innovative program, participants integrate personal experiences in a safe, stress-free, therapeutic environment with guidance and support of facilitators. Through visual art, drama, music and dance, techniques are utilized that foster and encourage validation, confidence, understanding and empowerment. This is a free, mobile, 6-week program situated and hosted in various locations assessed as higher-needs throughout Wood and Washington Counties. Services are available for ages 5 & up.
Students from local middle schools visit Artsbridge, Wood County Society, Parkersburg Art Center and Actors Guild of Parkersburg for workshops on pottery, drawing, acting, choreography, costumes and wigs. The goal is to introduce students to the area’s artistic and cultural offerings and actively engage them in the arts in a relaxed atmosphere.
