Since December 2018, the LKW Fund has been sponsoring art therapy programs under the supervision of Lisa Myers, Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and LKW Fund board member. We currently offer art therapy at the Integrated Arts Academy and at King Street Center. Art therapy can positively impact disaffected youngsters and change the trajectory of their lives. It provides an outlet to relieve stress and counter negative, destructive impulses so that children are then less inclined to engage in anti-social behavior. It helps them better understand themselves and believe in themselves and develop awareness that they can deal constructively with challenges and conflicts. Art therapy offers opportunities for growth and self-actualization. Our goal is to raise enough funds so that we can expand the program to more schools and venues and accommodate all children clinically identified as in need of such a program.
