High School Students

Studies show that engaging in any creative process is healing. Whether you make a simple drawing or collage, look at art or talk about it, creativity and the arts can help you:

  • Express thoughts and emotions that can be hard to put into words

  • Lower stress and anxiety

  • Relax and feel calmer and happier

  • Connect with yourself on a deep level, no matter what you are going through

  • Find meaning in life experiences

  • Cope with grief and loss

  • Form new connections with others

  • Shift your focus away from pain or stressful thoughts to activities that are soothing, enjoyable and fun

  • Create something unique that gives you a sense of pleasure and accomplishment

The Roots & Wings newsletter provides high school students an opportunity express themselves through writing, art, or photography. We are currently looking for students who are interested in serving on our newsletter committee.
