TAGA - Textile Arts and Global Awareness Ancha founded this organization to promote an international dialogue through the arts for youth by youth based upon young people's concerns about environmental issues, endangered species and many more subjects, including emotional and consciousness evolution. She recognized a deep need for an artistic and therapeutic platform for children who are bombarded with horrific "facts" threatening their future without any emotional support nor empowerment to contribute to needed changes in their daily lives. Ancha also helped create the first "child to child scholarships" funded by children's art that sponsored children worldwide, and she personally reached out and connected children internationally, which exceeded all of her visions..
Since the 1990's:
JOYFUL ALTERNATIVES IN HEALING ARTS: For Youths, Homeschooling Groups and Families A program and/or retreat supporting youths and families in their personal empowerment through arts and consciousness exploration. This group aims to inspire young people to create art to support the education of disadvantaged children worldwide. This program has served thousands of youths to this day. Since Ancha home-schooled her own children, she also became a home-school resource for those living alternative lifestyles. To view her students' creations, see the Youth Art Gallery link of this website, and please consider participating in scholarship development.
YEP - Youth Empowerment Programs These programs inspire youths to envision and create as they serve disadvantaged young people both locally and globally. They also help create sister schools and groups globally for youth to open up to the appreciation of cultural diversity. The YEP programs are offered in schools, homeschooling groups, and for private groups in California.
From 201O to Today:
DESIGNED, BUILT AND OPENED SPIRIT LAKE HERMITAGE: Ancha created and lives in this beautiful retreat dedicated to creating personal empowerment and collective consciousness evolution through healing arts. Nestled among mature oaks and manzanitas with an enchanting view of endless mountains and lovely Spirit Lake, her inspiring Hermitage is also the home of Joyful Alternatives in Healing Arts.
