Barnstone Art for Kids

Barnstone Art for Kids is a non-profit located in Phoenixville that uses the Power of Art to help children with a shaken sense of security to heal, cope, and grow.

Who we serve:  Children aged 5-14 facing adversity in Chester County.

What we do:  Barnstone Art for Kids pairs children with mentors in small groups to deliver a trauma-informed resilience program called the Power of Art. 

Why we do it:  Children with multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences suffer poor physical, emotional, and behavioral health outcomes. 

The Power of Art Program is a full-year curriculum program divided into 5 blocks that each meet for 6 consecutive weeks. Mentors may commit to one or more blocks, but should be available to attend each scheduled day.  Our Monday program begins September 18th, 2017 from 4:30-6:00 p.m.  Tuesday programs begin September 19th, 2017 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. and 6:30-8:00 p.m.  Training is required.  Please contact UCARE about possible transportation.
