ArtWell’s professional development workshops introduce educators and youth service providers to our unique approach, which combines creative expression and reflection to provide new tools for engaging young people, as well as a sense or replenishment and joy for the professionals who participate.
ArtWell was founded in 2000 to respond to the chronic community violence in Philadelphia by introducing a preventive, educational, arts-oriented approach to reach underserved communities and youth facing discrimination, poverty, violence, and the everyday challenges of growing up. Our mission is to support young people through arts education and creative reflection to discover their strengths, face complex challenges, and awaken their dreams.
