Creativity Continues! IMAGINE NATION Station Art

May 15, 2020

Collaboration is at the core of the work we do at Express Yourself.

We can continue to collaborate by sharing our creativity with each other!

One of our partner schools principals told us this week:

“We are so grateful for everything that this experience has been for our kids.  Our teachers have marveled at the things they saw in their students because of EXYO.  We had students attend who opened up in ways that they never do at school.  There just are no words for our gratitude for EXYO in creating this experience for them”

We are so proud of all of our youth’s resiliency and creativity and are excited to feature it in our upcoming virtual performance on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 7:00 pm hosted on our website www.exyo.org  In the meantime, check out all the artwork from ExYo Youth below!
