Lockview High School

Mental Wellness Art Program for Youth

In the program, youth express themselves through a variety of creative forms, while learning and practicing mindfulness, in a supportive peer setting. Our programs are designed with smaller participant caps, which allows for more purposeful and supportive peer engagement.


HeART programming is centered in four core approaches: Decolonial, Leisure Education, Community Youth Development, and Strength & Resiliency. More information about these can be found in the attached document.

And the best part, our programming is youth led! Allowing the participants in the program to design and create their own experiences, with the support of our staff. Helping them build skills in leadership, and interpersonal relationships.

This school year we are excited to offer 3 community programs:
