Summer August 8-12
@ the museum
Free to members.
Limited space available.

To further our mission MONA has partnered with Soul Models, a nonprofit organization that serves middle school aged girls in the Southern Maine and Seacoast area. The Soul Model curriculum follows the central themes of self-care incorporating mind, body, spirit, heart and soul. This will be the first summer session for Soul Models and will be hosted at the Museum of New Art Portsmouth. Connecting this valuable curriculum to the contemporary art our group exhibit Broken Open: Exploring the Body as a Resource, girls will be given the opportunity to explore their authentic voice in a safe and supportive setting while being introduced to tools that will increase their self-confidence and resiliency. Through activity-based programming guest facilitators will guide and support girls as they gain valuable life skills in the areas of stress-reduction techniques, leadership development, creative expression and an ethic of service.
