Working Through Life's Challenges Through Art
Can a paintbrush be a good substitute for a fist?
In some cases, yes.
Think about it… young people dealing with some of life's thornier problems can act out in a number of ways, including through violence.
But when they are given a chance to express themselves through art... the story changes.
That's the approach of the Life Track program, a project that combines Medford's LifeArt program with the counseling services of OnTrack.
Hear from counselor Tyrone McDonald about the approach and the art and results it produces.
