Among other vehicles, CHOICE has created a weekly art program and invites clients to indulge their creativity as they explore their feelings, motivations, fears, and dreams. This very powerful program has allowed the staff at CHOICE to reach clients previously thought to be unreachable. It’s amazing to watch someone who is barely verbal walk into the art room and become engaged in a project that allows him to express previously strangling emotions buried deep inside. Art allows people to explore their feelings in a less threatening manner and perhaps face them and successfully work their way through them. This meaningful collection of images is available for sale and your purchase will not only support the mission of CHOICE, but will provide positive feedback and a very powerful validating message to the artist.
The $25 donation to CHOICE from your purchase goes directly to supporting the art program with additional supplies and staffing support.
Here are a few examples of the incredible artwork you can see in our gallery:
Untitled Diamond on Aluminum by Sharon
Sharon is a Board Member of Choice of NY and has donated some of her work to the organization for sale. All of the proceeds from the sale of her images will be used to fund the Choice of NY Art Programs. Choice is a peer run agency and Sharon is a respected peer in our community. She created these images “as a way to get out of my own head. They are both a distraction and a labor of love. They come from my soul.”
Dempsey by Janet
Dempsey is Janet’s rendering of a beautiful creature peering through the greenery. Dempsey is thoughtful, soft, and mysterious…all at the same time. So many thoughts and so many feelings reflected through one magnificent animal.
