Why Painting? Why Us?
Painting was the only career that was beneficial for Founder Kurt's personal wellness and his pocketbook. He had tried re-educating with a $35000 dollar non-repayable grant that did not become an IT career. That would have broken him. He also tried several low pay, low self-esteem jobs including shiftwork.
Many pay vast sums for education with only 27% finding jobs in their fields. This leaves many with debt burden problem number 1 - debt without the ability to repay. Having a mental health or intellectual disability makes work challenging, so climbing the salary ladder is out of the question. That is debt burden problem number 2 - financial stress can affect your health. Finally debt burden number 3 - you have no leverage.
Painting is great wellness exercise, and well suited to able bodied people with a brain injury or mental illness.
Teaching you how to paint for wellness and to earn income, is our primary motivation.
