Art from the streets
Art From the Streets provides a weekly opportunity for artistic expression and space for homeless men and women to explore the arts as a catalyst for healing and therapy.
Art From the Streets includes art therapy classes, photography classes and a monthly art gallery open to the public.
With God’s help, our program offers those experiencing homelessness to express themselves and have access to art mentorship and supplies, while also presenting an opportunity to make a life transition out of homelessness.
Weekly class schedule
Drawing, painting, sculpture and the written word are all welcomed mediums during our weekly Art Therapy class. Professional artists and artists at heart lead men and women through thoughtful projects that offer respite from life’s challenges, with a focus on healing, reflection and of course, exercising creative energy.
Class participants use donated cameras to study photography with expert volunteers. The focus of this activity is developing relationships with volunteers and case managers while exploring the city and capturing God’s fingerprints in all things. Participants receive a print out of their favorite image. Volunteer photographers provide portraits of participants to send to loved ones.
Monthly art gallery
Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission puts on a monthly gallery during the Pioneer Square Art Walk — on the first Thursday of the month from 5:30pm-8:00pm.
All art displayed is created during the Monday afternoon program by homeless men and women, or by those currently staying at the Men’s Shelter.
First Thursday of every month
