Shauna Perry - After school Art Club

Shauna Perry, Montessori Del Mundo – After school Art Club

Date grant awarded: 11/27/2017

Shauna Perry is an inspiring art therapist with passion for youth empowerment and social change. She helps youth in Colorado share their stories through art. Shauna has done art projects with students for culture festivals, art outreach to refugee and immigrant youth and parents, as well as individual and group art therapy. She sees art as a universal medium for youth to express their thoughts and emotions despite any cultural or language barriers.

With the seed grant from the Pollination Project, Shauna and the children in her art club will work together on creating an art mural that will be displayed as a meaningful and lasting, positive contribution in their school. The mural project mission fits well with the Youth Leadership Hub focus on youth empowerment. It will give Montessori Del Mundo children an empowering role and a voice to share their stories, cultures and dreams.
