Gasman, Marybeth; Anderson-Thompkins, Sibby
Journal of Education for Students Placed at Risk, v8 n4 p429-50 2003
Examined the life histories of early adolescent participants in Artists in the Making, a program designed to motivate inner city youth through participation in visual arts classes. Student interviews indicated that, despite participant diversity, there were several common themes, including self-discovery, problem solving skills, opportunities for positive risk taking, and mastery of artistic skills. Proposed that community-based youth programs can help children develop resilience. (SM)
