We support the non profit I am Young and their programme Drawing and So!
I am Young (Amsterdam) offers children and youngsters in challenging situations tools and opportunities for their personal development. Last April this NGO started the programme Drawing and So! One of the goals of this programme is to offer children meaningful activities that will help them to explore their creativity. Improved self-esteem, a positive sense of belonging and personal development will be the result.
Artist Floor started the programme with a group of 6 children, and now, 11 workshops later, already 20 children participate in the drawing classes. They already learned about different disciplines and are eager to work with all kind of materials like Ecoline and charcoal.
In a team the children discover their creative process and are encouraged to experience together that there is more to life than smart phones and social media.
