recommended but not limited to ages 10 and up

April 19th – July 7th

K Space Contemporary, in partnership with Esperanza de Tejas, is pleased to present a new art education initiative called Creating Hope with ArtCreating Hope is an art education program to help people in the Coastal Bend heal from negative life events by learning to transform their emotions into artwork.  Creating Hope focuses on ways to re-frame negative thoughts, promote gratitude, identify emotions, and practice mindfulness and self-care. In addition to learning art techniques, participants will take away skills that they can continue to practice independently and integrate into new ways of coping now and in the future. We can spark hope and create a healthy mindset through art! 

Creating Hope with Art will culminate in an exhibition featuring works by participants at K Space Contemporary.
