Art club is a space for our youth to learn how to express themselves. This past year, the group experimented with various mediums of art – paint, recycled materials, charcoal, photography, and more. While working on these various artworks, the art club decided to host CasaSito's first ever art exhibit, "Expresión" (Expression). For most of our scholars, it was the first time they created art and publicly displayed their work. Many feared their talent would not shine through, but they were encouraged that the most important thing was for them to love their own work.
While we wanted to display this unique collection of artwork, the goal of the exhibit was to empower our youth. On opening night, the art club shared the stories behind their artwork. Every scholar sold one of their original pieces! The event was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who attended. Our youth are now confident in their art and are excited to continue creating new pieces.
