Pathfinder

Emmy-Award winning educator and costume designer Nancy Konrardy continues her twelve week residency at Pathfinder, the school attached to the Lancaster County Juvenile Detention Center. These students have typically experienced trauma. Being incarcerated is traumatic in and of itself. Nancy’s art classes are a time for these children to let out their emotions on their own terms and without judgement. Feelings and heavy secrets have come out in their pieces, and the time they spend doing art is cathartic and healing. Furthermore, Nancy shows the students just how much they are capable of doing and understanding, exploring with them famous artists, styles and techniques.
