Schools for Troubled Teens Help Restore Hawaii Youth’s Confidence

High school is a difficult time for many teens, especially those struggling with mental and emotional challenges. Motivation for schoolwork suffers when teens are overwhelmed with grief, trauma, and abuse. Hawaii teens in a downward spiral of aggressive behaviors, isolation, substance abuse or truancy often struggle with poor academic performance and low self-confidence. Schools for troubled teens understand how difficult this period is for many teenagers.

Art Foundations I & II: Introductory classes emphasize the fundamentals of art and give previews of a variety of styles, like two and three-dimensional design and drawing. Students have the opportunity to explore a variety of media to express themselves visually, using basic art concepts like color theory, studio techniques, and aesthetics. Teens will also be exposed to various art movements and how they impacted the history of art.

Through self-expression, girls and assigned female at birth build confidence and assertiveness, and feel more connected to the world.

Drawing: The goal of our drawing class is to teach students how to accurately see and record objects using a variety of media, such as colored pencils, pastels, and graphite, which serve as the basic building blocks of all styles of art.
