Therapeutic activities come in a variety of shapes and styles, which is why EDGE Learning and Wellness Collegiate Community (IL) provides opportunities to meaningfully explore different ways to express themselves. The Art Impact Project has a history of allowing students to tell their own stories using a variety of media.
Using our existing Sunday Connection Night as a platform, facilitators from the Art Impact Project engage students and staff in expressive art projects. Students have already shared that they enjoy the non-judgmental, open environment. “I liked that I could sort of do what I wanted, with just a little guidance and some art supplies from [the facilitator],” said one young woman after the first session.
The EDGE Team continues to incorporate programming that has broad therapeutic applications to support the individual goals of all students while tailoring individual interventions to each student. The Art Impact Project joins other EDGE programming that includes a weekly mindfulness group, HeartMath, and diverse fitness programming as opportunities for students to explore new ways to manage and express emotions.
EDGE Learning and Wellness Collegiate Community located in Chicago, IL offers a therapeutically supported living environment for post-treatment young adults striving to excel academically while creating a life of balance, joy, and wellness.
