‘Art That Feeds’ Youth Workshops

« View Blog Archives

Artist Robert Marx will be leading the first 'Art That Feeds' Youth Workshop this February

Conscious Alliance is initiating a series of art workshops for native and non-native youth, beginning in the Boulder/Denver area. The youth will spend a day working with a very special artist, who is part of the Conscious Alliance community and has previously donated their artwork to our ‘Art That Feeds’ program. Each workshop will be directed by a different artist, who will work with the youth to inspire their creativity through the power of guidance and collaboration.

The youth will spend a day exploring their imagination and producing their own unique artwork under the guidance of these artists. They will also collaborate with their fellow youth in the program. This youth movement will use art as a vehicle that can be used to engage the younger generation in activities that will increase their self-esteem and inspire the use of their talents and aspirations.

Many of the youth involved in the workshops experience high levels of adolescent risk factors, including extreme economic deprivation. These art workshops are designed to have a tremendous impact on the youth and reduce the effects of these risk factors. Not only can such programs enhance young peoples’ attitudes about themselves and their futures, but the programs also provide opportunities for youth to learn new skills and encourages them to engage in the arts.

Conscious Alliance is teaming up with the Stronghold Society to launch the initial workshop this February. Robert Marx, a long-time collaborator with Conscious Alliance, will be the first artist to lead the youth in a day-long workshop at Factory Made in Boulder. With the help of our supporters, we will cultivate a collective movement to inspire confidence, creativity, hope, and ambition for the youth of native and non-native communities.

As I spent more and more time volunteering with CA I began experiencing a growing internal connection to the mission and values of the organization, which led me to begin my personal journey of learning more about food, agricultural systems, and why and how the food system in America worked (and how it didn't).
