Every year, Radius partners with the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Arts in Toronto to offer children and youth an art therapy based approach to healing from the impacts of abuse. And this year was no different! An amazing group of young artists created a wonderful exhibit that was presented to the public from June 19 to 24.
One of the artists describes their experience:
“My sculpture represents my journey. It began in a rough way; someone who I thought was my friend ended up not being the case – they broke my trust. Now I am on a great path. Before (prior to the start of the group) I wasn’t myself, I was down. Since the group, I feel like I am not alone, there are people there for me. Working with art has helped with this. Just know there is always hope and people there for you.”
Artist, age 13
