Free Art Tutorial Lessons

Art is about trying new things, expressing ourselves and connecting deeply inside and outside. It helps us soothe and heal. Art can be a good way to express something that’s hard to say. Through art, we connect with our own thoughts and feelings and with other people.

Art is a Healing Mode of Expression

The Superpower Art Adventure is an initiative by Keiki Heroes to understand their agency as a collection of superpowers and promotes a sense of purpose, increasing their resilience.

Art is a healing mode of expression, and accessible to keiki of all ages. Encouraging keiki to exercise their superpowers by using them to help someone or contribute to the community further reinforces a sense of purpose and their connection with others. By inviting keiki to identify what their superpowers are – what they can do to help – and articulate them through art creates an opportunity for Keiki Heroes to elevate children’s voices, validate their contributions and share their optimistic messages with the broader community so in need of inspiration and hope.

Supporting Artists

Keiki Heroes is incredibly grateful and fortunate to work with these dedicated artists to bring the healing properties of artistic expression to our keiki.
