Xpress U Thru Art
Young Black Men, you participate in Good Journey’s Xpress You Thru Art to explore trauma, oppression, emotions, resiliency, the ability to develop self-care, to develop community care, and ability to positively project internally and externally through the creation of art. The guiding artist challenges you in your work on art projects that speak to who you are and what you feel, while the guiding therapist helps you learn to communicate your experiences in ways that reinforce and build upon your humanity to create space for healing. Xpress You Thru Art builds skills in self and world perception, self-care, resiliency, and community appreciation, that leads to you making healthier life choices. By participating in Xpress You Thru Art, a culturally relevant program centered in Black concepts for healing, you have the opportunity to experience up to 8 art projects of: self-discovery, identity, self-expression, transformation, confidence, self-determination, discipline, strategy, decisions and consequences, positive influences, cause and effect, and self-worth. You tap into your Good Journey, develop as a leader, and embrace the skills needed to be community builders.
