RAW Art Works does art with kids from ages 7 to 17 who are struggling with some part of their home or school lives, and through the expression of art, helps them to express their feelings and connect with peers and adults who can help.  I went to visit with SheGives Boston.

The art projects were clever, and allowed us to make so much out of so lithe, just chalk, paper, and a wooden dowel.  The studio was bright and airy, and was covered in art made by other kids.

There was space for everyone to work.I enjoyed working with the Teen Leaders; they were very fun and gave us ideas for projects, and also backed up my point that it’s not art unless you’re messy.
