On July 16th 2012 I gave a workshop for children from ages 6-9 at the New York Center for Children. NYCC provides treatment and counseling for children in a secure, stable environment in which to heal. They also provide resources to families and the community to help spot and remedy potentially abusive situations.
My goal in this workshop was to convey to the kids that they’re creativity can be a source of healing and a vehicle for them to reach they’re potential in whatever path they choose in life. The arts and music help develop our imaginations and teach us that the gold inside us really is our own creativity.
It was a truly inspiring workshop, where the children’s talent, intelligence and creativity revealed itself many times.
