On October 4, 2015, the Child Mind Institute held an opening reception for an exhibit showcasing artwork by Gateway students. Called Beginning with the Self, the exhibit features self-portraits in watercolor, colored pencils, marker, and acrylic. Students immersed themselves in the imagery of traditional mandalas and incorporated those designs into vibrant drawings that poignantly capture each student’s complex inner world. These self-portraits also illustrate the students’ abilities to reflect on who they are, and who they are becoming.
The Child Mind Institute, located at 445 Park Avenue in Manhattan, is a non-profit organization and clinical practice that is dedicated to finding more effective treatments for childhood psychiatric and learning disorders, building the science of healthy brain development, and empowering children and their families with help, hope, and answers.
