Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The vision of YOUR HEART ON ART, INC is to assist adults and children suffering from the emotional impacts of abuse, illness, grief, fear or stress through individual workshops and community programs that offer expression, encouragement, clarity and insight.

4 objectives for workshop program are :
1. Understand how using full spectrum color as a language of expressing feelings works
2. Understand and articulate how a structured curriculum differs from a free expression art curriculum
3. Understand how artistic expression is good for our communities and how to utilize them.
4. Understand the utilization of the creative process through painting can be healing and therapeutic.

Our goal is for our participants (children ages 6 to senior adult) to acquire a greater self awareness and the confidence to process feelings and emotions and the ability to articulate and share these feelings and emotions with others.

This is not art therapy but therapeutic art. We do not diagnose or offer interpretation of their work but instead we open avenues for dialog.

Your Heart on Art facilitates the creative process while encouraging emotional healing—and these two paths often intersect when words are not adequate, and pain is too deep. Our mix of artistic development and expression coupled with a creative healing model allow participants to learn a new way of communicating through color that encourages emotional breakthroughs and further enhances the therapy process. Unlike other art programs that employ a loose format of free expression

SInce our founding in 2012 YHOA has reached more than 5,500 individuals in the Nashville area through workshops and special events. We received the 2019 Service Organization of year award from Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network for our work. Has been recognized by Mental Health America of MIddle Tennessee as a Collaborative partner and 4 years in a row received the EVE award for Excellence in Volunteer Engagement. We are reaching out to more of the community we feel is unserved and needs our assistants in helping the communal population heal. YHOA will continue this year to produce a travelling art project that speaks about suicide, its survivors of loss, the lived experience survivor and its stigma. And add collaborations and partnerships
