Just imagine what we can do

Art Impact Project is a non-profit organization founded by Vickie Marasco of Lake Forest, IL. The beauty of Art Impact Project is how easily our art programming can be integrated into our partners’ programs. This flexibility allows us to work with many kinds of groups and organizations in many different ways. Some of our partnerships — past, present and future — include:

  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)
  • Sober living homes
  • Substance abuse recovery sites
  • Behavioral & mental health facilities
  • High school wellness programs
  • College prevention & recovery programs
  • After-school programs for at-risk adolescents
WONDERING HOW A PARTNERSHIP WITH US MIGHT WORK?

Here’s a brief overview of our first partnership back in 2013 with an existing IOP:

  • Our art programming was incorporated into the IOP facility’s therapy sessions
  • The teens and IOP therapist met with an Art Advocate from Art Impact Project twice a month
  • The Art Advocate created art side by side with the adolescents, allowing for a relationship of trust and opportunity for open discussion
  • The result: it was clear to all that the art sessions freely allowed the teens to work through their feelings and problem solve
