Welcome! As a high school student at Harker School in CA, I have been dabbling in art as a child and come to enjoy its benefits. I am now leveraging my artistic skills to launch/lead a Bay Area wide "Art for Recovery (Pain Therapy)" project to share my passion for the arts with the goal to further the recovery of pediatric patients in hospitals and needy children in local shelters while giving back positively to the community.Visit www.art4recovery.com to learn more about how you can help!
Lying helpless in a hospital bed can be very traumatic for a child. Trapped in a shelter away from a normal family life can also be very demotivating for children. My vision is to provide an opportunity for the sick/needy children to explore their artistic bend as a distraction from their condition. Art will be a therapeutic means for a positive step towards recovery and self-awareness. As a part of this program, I teach children basic art skills, involving them in fun arts and craft activities, while providing them with all the requisite supplies to make the program feasible.
As proven by psychologists, incorporating art in a recovery process can help improve a person’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Art exploration distracts people from their condition, provides them with an outlet for feelings while providing enjoyment. Dabbling in art eases their mind, reduces stress of the hospital/homeless shelter experience, while nurturing their creative side, and giving them something positive to look forward to. You can help by funding the art supplies needed to make this happen!For more information about me:http://www.mercurynews.com/my-town/ci_26462913/harker-student-avni-barman-shares-her-passion-art
