Kelvin Ramirez is the soul of compassion. And curiosity. And determination. He’s an artist, teacher, and therapist who sees the world as it could be—a place where children grow and create and explore without fear. And wherever strife and trauma exist, whether in his South Bronx high school or across an ocean, he’s helping kids find solutions through making art of their own. Ramirez wants to share his vision with others. He’s led service trips for art therapy graduate students to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic to demonstrate how artistic expression can help restore hope and dignity to those living in impoverished communities. He and his students have seen the ways that art transcends cultures and circumstances, enriching both caregivers and the individuals they’ve come to help. Ramirez says, “The people we work with, and their remarkable resilience, are a reminder every day that we ourselves have to improve.”
"Creativity allows us to place meaning into our experiences."
