At OSP, we believe in providing therapeutic and stimulating programming that combines the art-making process with writing, resulting in healthy expression of emotions, better decision making, and mental clarity.
We believe that art can change everything.
Ethic of Care
OSP has developed a process-oriented approach to meet with Illinois SEL and visual arts standards that support students’ emotional health and well- being. It is one of the first art-based organizations in Illinois to develop an evidence-based social and emotional learning curriculum that incorporates a creative methodology and meets SEL and visual arts goals for all students, including those with communication disorders, autism, and special needs.
