The Power of Art

Upper School Art I and Art II students recently had the honor of meeting and working with Lily Yeh, founder of Barefoot Artists, an organization that revitalizes struggling communities around the world through art. Yeh explained how art has the power to inspire healing, self-empowerment, and social change, and promote economic development. After hearing Yeh’s personal stories about her work in broken communities, one student shared, “I feel so refreshed and inspired to do something positive.” The freshmen also spent time in the studio creating two 8x8 foot paintings with the guest artist, one for our campus and one for a school that Barefoot Artists is assisting in China.
