The Black Dog Hill Domestic Abuse Shelter offered art classes to residents in 2015 through the generous support of the Minnesota State Arts board. Four artists from Minneapolis taught art classes in their chosen medium over the course of the year. The women and children were able to draw, wood carve, paint, and learn photography from professional artists.

We are committed to providing the families of the shelter with safety, not only physically, but also emotionally. We know that the arts empower people to change, heal the mind through the process of making, and give individuals confidence. All of these things are essential to break the cycle of abuse that can travel through generations. 

The Black Dog Hill Domestic Abuse Shelter is currently developing future arts programming based on the success of the Partners in Participation grant awarded by the Minnesota State Arts Board.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
