Expressive Path is offering their students a fresh start, a chance to express themselves despite the boundaries that may have held them back. Happening (iN)TOWN had the chance to sit down with Expressive Path founder, Pamela Martin, and a few of the program students, Izaiah Wells, 18, and Evanescence Thoenebe, 15.
From their own mouths, students revered the program as “life changing, and impactful”
Program participant, Izaiah Wells, 18, went on to say, “before expressive path, I was stuck… I had artistic talent in me, but I was unmotivated and scared.”
Now gleaming with the light of reborn energy, Izaiah and Evanescence, are more than happy to share the work they’ve created during and outside of Expressive Path. From charcoal drawings, to photojournalism, and rap song covers, Izaiah and Evanescence personified the underlying power of unabashed expression.
Both students are slated to showcase their talents during the Arts In The Park celebration September 7th.
At Expressive Path, students get the incentive to “earn what you learn”. The day of out interview Evanescence was completing her photojournalism course, making her the recipient of her own professional camera.
Listening the her students speak of the impact of the program, founder Pamela Martin was almost moved to tears.
