The Alcott Center for Mental Health Services has been on the forefront of community mental health services since 1979, meeting the needs of community members who have little to no income and would not otherwise have access to the care they require. In addition to therapy, case and medication management, and crisis interventions, the Alcott Center also provides studio art classes that are open to all community members. Through the studio art classes, the Alcott Center empowers individuals by providing a space for them to also sell their art. The Studio Arts Program was born from a need for clients to be able to express themselves in an alternative manner. We are looking for volunteers who would like to give by to the community by sharing their art skills through teaching classes. We will be holding art classes in person for a small group of 5-8 clients socially distanced on Thursdays from 10:30am-12pm.

"The freedom of expressing oneself without words is a great form of therapy," says accomplished artist and client advocate, Tristan Scremin. "Art has a way of calming the mind and soothing the soul."

Please feel free to reach out to Ashley McGullam at amcgullam@alcottcenter.org or (818)669-0670 if you would like more information! Check out the video below to see more about the art program and the impacts the program has had for community members navigating mental health challenges and/or houselessness.
