Challenge

Most Vietnamese schools lack the funding to properly supply materials for school art classes, and if there are classes, they often follow rigid standards. All young Vietnamese students have difficult daily schedules and don't have the opportunity to be creative and expressive in individual ways. Underprivileged youth who are passionate about art, often do not have the opportunity to be educated in the arts outside of school.

Solution

By providing students an avenue for self-expression, we hope to offer temporary relief from rigorous school schedules and difficult life situations. This project will offer the students the means in which they can express themselves in a stress free environment while building lifelong skills and relationships.

Long-Term Impact

Studies have shown that youth who are engaged in extracurricular arts programs are far more likely to excel and remain in school longer. A successful art program promotes the development of creative thinking, problem solving and communication skills; all necessary for future employment and self-sufficiency. Students who are passionate about art will be given the opportunity to work freely and find ways to apply this in their individual lives.
