HAALO Youth to Unveil Works of Art

On Tuesday, May 21st at 6:00 pm there will be an unveiling of 4 new pieces of art on East Third Street at Sears St. in downtown Dayton! These master replicas have been created by young people in the HAALO (Helping Adolescents Achieve Long-term Objectives) Program. This program is a partnership project between Montgomery County Juvenile Court and K12/TEJAS Gallery which focuses on young people who are Court-involved.  The goal is to expose Court-involved youth to different mediums of art while also teaching them life skills that will assist them in being successful members of our community; from critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills to creativity, motivation, and patience, the therapeutic process of the HAALO Program has endless benefits for the young people involved. 

In its third year, this program has been successful at generating artwork for the community, but more importantly, in helping young people learn that the choices they make have consequences in the future. They work alongside a local artist who guides them through the creative process and teaches them about the lives of the Great Masters as they recreate their artwork.  The youth learn that great artists have had to struggle with the same kinds of difficulties and situations in their lives that the youth face today.  Local Judges and attorneys support the program because it is showing signs of reducing recidivism for the young people involved. Supported by the Ohio Arts Council, the Iddings Foundation, and the Dayton Foundation, the HAALO partnership is successfully bringing art to the Dayton community!  We hope that everyone will come to K12/TEJAS Gallery at 510 East Third Street on May 21st to help unveil the new additions to the Museum on the Street!
