The Art of Growing Leaders is an expansion of ArtWell’s long-running rites of passage program, The Art of Growing Up. Through mask-making, poetry and multi-disciplinary arts, students build trust with one another and explore their identity and aspirations, inspired by cross-cultural coming of age traditions. Later in the program, students identify their unique strengths as leaders and work together on a social action project using art for advocacy and activism.
Partners can select either the rites of passage or leadership development components or choose a year-long program with both. Participant groups may be single or mixed gender.
