"Me, Myself, and I"
The “Me, Myself and I” Program is a self-awareness program guided by expert artists and musicians, that incorporates painting, drawing, dance, photography, and videography. In 2021, “Me, Myself, and I” will bring arts industry professionals into children’s organizations to work one-on-one with students to create and share their self-portraits.
The program can be customized and adapted to meet children’s’ needs. The initiative helps children of all abilities develop and express their story – a sequential, building-block approach -- with visual and performing arts, digital creations, the written word, and story telling to “paint” their self-portraits. The “Me, Myself, and I” program has been successfully implemented in groups of children with various learning differences, including children with autism and Down Syndrome as well as neuro-typical children. The application of this program is limitless! We create a multitude of opportunities to continue this expression.
Recently, the Children's Fine and Performing Arts Foundation brought the Award-winning children’s television writer, author, and screenwriter, Rodney Stringfellow, to the groundbreaking Meeting Street Academy. Mr. Stringfellow electrified a workshop in which children identified their inner super powers and wrote their own story of heroism.

“We’re grateful for anything that can bring art to our community of kids. There’s so much benefit from using art—a way of self-expression and self-awareness, to help self-calm. There’s so much benefit!”

“People with Autism are capable. They are capable of working. They are capable of living on their own. It’s time for us to step up and have ambitious leaders go out and do what they can to support these individuals”.
