“ArtWorks“- a visual arts ministry, which brings healing and creates new opportunities to disadvantaged children through art – is one of the ministry that grew out of St. Luke’s and is now one of four programs under Go Full STEAM.
Virtual Self Portraits Exhibition by Teens to Raise Awareness on Child Abuse
This year, due to the shelter in place order, the Winter Garden Arts Association is making the exhibition of the self-portraits available virtually. Please spend a few minutes viewing the student’s beautiful self-portraits and reading their powerful stories, then share this with anyone else you think would be interested.

Holding On to Hope
This event was sponsored by the Winter Garden Art Association and St. Luke’s United Methodist Church.
An exhibit of introspective children’s art designed to raise awareness and inspire action for child abuse prevention. Created by children ages 10 – 17 the art provides an intimate glimpse into their world as they struggle to overcome challenges, hold onto hopes and dreams, and navigate the world around them. The projects were designed to inspire personal growth, raise self esteem, and provide opportunities for each child to express what makes them truly unique.
All art was created under the direction of Renée Schneider, founder of ArtWorks-Orlando with funding provided by the Winter Garden Art Association and St. Luke’s United Methodist Church. Over sixty children from five area organizations participated. The children’s art will also be exhibited at other prominent Central Florida locations as part of Paint Orlando Blue, a child abuse prevention campaign sponsored by the Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families.
