What do you see when you look in a mirror?
Do you see your scars as "imperfections" or do you see your scars as a mark of your bravery and a story of your survival?
Everything in life is about perspective.
When you change the way you look at things...
...the things you look at change.
A scar simply means you are stronger than that which tried to hurt you.

What is "ScART"?
ScART (which stands for "Scar Art") is an empowering painting experience. It has been designed as a supportive group experience, where participants are given the opportunity to see their scars through a new lens. Using art as the tool, participants engage in a 3-part class, comprised of:
Every scar tells a story.
See your scars through a new lens.
Scars are something nearly everyone has to deal with at some point in their lives. For some, scars are tucked away, never to be thought of again. For others, scars can be a daily reminder of a life event that caused them. The ScART program gives participants the opportunity to examine their emotional relationship to their scars using art as the tool.
Change what you see.
Find beauty in scars through a national community of survivors.
The objective of the ScART program is to facilitate connections and create conversations with others who have scars at private group or individual paint classes nationwide.
