Anne Rakow-Weist, Art Therapist – “Me-shirt” Design Project at Dr. Rosa Minoka-Hill School
I am an art therapist who has worked in the Green Bay Public School System since 1986. I have served many students who come from backgrounds of trauma, autism and mental illness, all seeking ways to express themselves, make connections and heal. Transferring their own artwork, photos, designs or statements to a T-shirt (Me-shirt), that they will soon wear, helps to meet some of those needs. At every age level – K through 12th grade – they are so proud to wear their creations to school and out in the community!
