Outreach and Art Education with Immigrants & Refugees
In collaboration with the International Institute, Webster Arts has launched an art program for refugees and immigrants in the St. Louis area. Webster Arts believes that art can elevate the human spirit, reduce stress, and bridge communication gaps. More than 50 people from Bhutan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Syria, Afghanistan, and Vietnam participated in the first six-week session that ended in April.
Fall Sessions will continue on Thursdays, noon-1, at the International Institute, though early December. Interested in volunteering? Call 314.918.2671.
Participants had the chance to work with clay, mono printing on fiber and paper, drawing, and watercolors painting. Funding was made possible through a grant from the Trio Foundation of St. Louis.
