Join AHC for a 10-hour visual Arts and Social Justice Workshop on the creation of the Self as Super Hero.

The ArtEsteem Super Hero is a re-created version of self that embodies superpowers that help create a more loving and peaceful world. The workshop provides a platform for self-development, cultural sensibilities, inner awareness, and an innovative approach to arts integration while exploring voice and vision for solving our most critical problems in the community and in the world.
