Lumi's six-week course empowers teens & pre-teens to take on life - and thrive!

Build Resilience

Stress is unavoidable. We will discuss evidence-based ways to manage stress effectively, so they can thrive.

Improve Self-Esteem

We will discover body-image strengths, explore body-acceptance and create art rooted in self-love and compassion.

Social-Emotional Skill Development

We will grow in our knowledge of naming and identifying emotions, building empathy and creative problem solving.

Join a Community

Like-minded teens & pre-teens support one another throughout their 6-week journey. They become great friends and build relationships that last a lifetime. 

6-weeks of art and skill building. 1 life-changing experience.

The Lumi Kit!

Each week we will be using art supplies from The Kit to complete challenges that push each student to use creativity as a stress reliever and for emotional expression. The Kit includes:
36 color watercolor paint set
Jewelry making kit
Neon putty
Holographic glitter
Glow sticks
Essential oils
And more!
