At EA, we believe that the process of creating art helps us to manage our feelings in a positive way and gives confidence to address and resolve challenges.

“I believe that the process of self-expression through art can greatly improve our mental, social and emotional well being. As a teenager, being a creative and using my creativity to get me through tough emotional times saved me. I just want to share that with young people.”
