HIDDEN PAIN by Jessica H.
“The artwork shown here was created by students from Madonna Heights. This work gives them a voice. As the art instructor for Madonna Heights School over the last 15 years, I developed a program designed to foster self-control, respect for others, problem solving, personal expression, and many other skills these young adults can take into their future. The experience of crafting their artwork is a vehicle toward the ultimate goal -- helping them heal and overcome struggles they have endured, becoming more confident about themselves, and feeling a sense of accomplishment. This is what I strive to achieve and it is with great pride that I can see the fruition of these girls’ efforts.”
