“I am a Work of Art”
Every child is a work of art.
In 2017 the American Art Therapy Association, collaborating with Office of Head Start and Youth M.O.V.E. National, sent out a call for art and an invitation to young artists to show how they took these words to heart: “I am a work of art.” Gathering hundreds of submissions, we created this digital exhibition to celebrate the important role of art and creativity in mental health, wellness, and social-emotional well-being for our children, youth, and young adults.
The young artists whose work is shown here agreed to participate in this online exhibit, #IAmAWorkOfArt.
