Our award-winning "Space of Her Own" (SOHO) outreach program engages at-risk, low-income, 5th-grade girls in a year of personal growth centered on art. This collaboration with the Alexandria Court Service Unit pairs each girl with an adult, female mentor to participate in art lessons led by Art League artist instructors. Each week, girls and mentors work together to create expressive artwork. These sessions become the catalyst to discuss larger life concerns, decision-making, and emotional issues. At the completion of the program, the teams remodel each of the girls' bedrooms, incorporating all of their artwork, to truly give each girl a "space of her own."
