LZM Studio is now offering drawing lessons via Small Victories Foundation scholarships. I am more than excited to work in partnership with Small Victories Foundation– an Austin, Texas based nonprofit that provides creative classes and lessons for individuals who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injuries. Small Victories Foundation was started by Derrick and Cindy Wright, after Derrick suffered a brain injury while serving in Iraq. The mission of the Small Victories Foundation is to challenge and support the brain-injured in the United States by providing a post-therapy educational experience in the arts. The idea is that once the hospitalization, occupational and physical therapy part of the recovery process is over, there is still healing that needs to be done. Encouraging individuals with a brain injury to delve into a practice in the arts, helps them to create a new life. Learning a new skill set and accomplishing something creative and new brings new purpose.
I am honored to be a part of their team, and to provide lessons for others who have suffered the same injuries serving our country. You can read more about my collaboration with them here. If you are interested in signing up for my lessons via them, start by contacting Small Victories first. They will partner you with me, and arrange for payment for your lessons themselves!
