Pridelines goes Pearl

This Tuesday the students at Pridelines Youth Services worked with artist and WOTR! Coordinator, Crystal Pearl to create their own works inspired by the series, Food Body.

Beyond body image, students also discussed the ways in which female bodies are consumed much like food by modern society.

The artist discussed how facing insecurities head on through humor can help to shift both social and personal perspectives of body image and self-esteem.

As a group, we contemplated the ways in which we are presented daily with negotiations between the attractive and repulsive.

…and we all left feeling both empowered and quite hungry.   WOTR! can’t wait to visit Pridelines Youth Services again later this month.
