Wendy Grossman, Founder
A graduate of The New School For Social Research, Wendy has worked in social service direct care, administration, and art therapy practices with the homeless, the mentally ill, and the elderly. Wendy created and led Arts and Recreation Programs for two NYC homeless services agencies: The Bowery Residents’ Committee and the John Heuss House Drop-In Center. These experiences–coupled with her desire to work with people of special needs who use art for self-expression, healing, and growth–led her to form fresh art. She and her family live in Rhode Island, where Wendy leads art and writing workshops for homeless men and women.
