January: Charles Northshield has had the distinctive advantage of working with students and assisting them in their use of both cognitive and manipulative domains in problem solving. There is a sense of pride and accomplishment and development of a variety of skills when working in any art media. Throughout his life Charles has enjoyed working in many media including painting, technical drawing, sculpting with clay and stone, and the construction of objects using wood, specifically bird houses.

February:  This month Good Ground Artists and Friends will display a collection of works entitled Winter Uplift. The group consists of artists and art-minded people who are dedicated to promoting the arts.

Our talking circles, Girls Circle and The Council for Boys, reach across demographics to help youth find belonging, develop healthy social skills, and build self-confidence. These structured meetings also use evidence based techniques to provide healing, prevention, and intervention tools for teens who have or may experience trauma. 

These circles create connection and build a community that provides safety, respect, non-judgment, and a listening environment. Facilitators avoid lecture or advice, but affirm strengths and promote youth leadership through the core principle that all people deserve a voice, to be believed in, and to know that “they are not alone.”
