Art with Purpose

The Orlando Museum of Art is proud to present Art with Purpose in partnership with the Zebra Coalition, a local non-profit organization that provides services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth ages 13 – 24. The program offers the Zebra youth weekly art workshops that relate to topics of identity. Each youth is provided with a visual journal in which he or she creates his or her work.

The process of art journaling allows the youth to engage in a progressive internal dialogue whose tone develops each week. At the conclusion of each session, the youth are asked to share their work with the group—a conversation that is overseen by a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. The objective of the program is to provide engaging art programming that offers opportunities for self-development and self-improvement.

In addition to the weekly studio program, youth from the Zebra Coalition visit local art museums and exhibit in gallery shows throughout the year.
