For three weeks Benjamin Swatez, Oscar Guinez and OMAI conducted an art therapy project with more than 160 children. The project worked in partnership with DINAF, Escuela DiRani, and Escuela Especial 2-020. Everyone was welcome: youth from the streets, children who were removed from their home due to severe abuse, children with mental and/ or physical disabilities, and children who just wanted to learn how to paint! This course included an art therapy curriculum, an art exhibition and a 20 meter mural, using all the tools to provide a safe environment for self empowerment and self esteem building through the power of creativity, the colors of love and friendship.
