Region Ten's Trauma-Informed Care Network

Teaming up with Region Ten’s Trauma-Informed Care Network, we facilitated the creation of a student-led mural project. Handpicked students engaged in a collaborative effort with local muralist Karina Monroy to conceptualize a collective design intended for 7-foot wooden panels. Over multiple sessions, Karina skillfully guided the students, nurturing their design ideas and ensuring their comfort in sharing their artistic expressions with the broader community. This transformative process not only provided artistic support but also played a vital role in boosting the student’s confidence in their creative abilities.
