Youth Making Change!
January 14, 2019
In celebration of Express Yourself performing, and partnering with the Boch Center – Wang Theatre and Department of Mental Health for our “quarter” century performance on May 23, 2019, ExYo Youth designed their very own 25¢ pieces this past week. Inspired by the collaboration between Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat, our youth explored pop art, symbolism and screen printing to create unique and playful designs.
Speaking of positive change, one of our youth mentors says:
“At Express Yourself I find myself being someone completely different. I get to be myself and meet other people being themselves. I think this is what makes art so important for me. No matter what problems, or diagnosis, you come here or anywhere with, you are not alone at Express Yourself.”
