Open Doors Feature: Home of the Innocents Inside Out Boxes

We've had a great time working with Kosair Kids® through Kosair Charities and Fund for the Arts to bring a 28-week art therapy program as part of a full school year initiative with Home of the Innocents! During this class visit, students were finishing up their Inside Out Boxes with Lori Kelley. They decorated the outside of the boxes as a representation of the self they show to the world and the inside of the boxes as their inner self. Students made the boxes very personal— illustrating their hopes, dreams, and fears. A couple students wanted to share their work with the camera, others chose to keep it private.

Students who finished their boxes worked on creating "quote trees" with their own quotes and tree designs.
