Expressive Path provides tours, lectures, and hands-on learning experiences.
Our Mentors conduct art and music workshops in schools, centers, nonprofits, and at the Montgomery County Youth Center. Through our Tools for Success component, students can earn instruments or art supplies by meeting basic goals while practicing their craft
Our students showcase their talents in the community through performance and exhibition. Our yearly theme results in an exhibition with more than 100 piece of art to view.
Expressive Path has moved to a virtual education platform. This is a component that we plan to keep even after schools and businesses return to standard operations.
In the summer of 2021, Expressive Path will launch a 4 week summer arts program at Centre Theater. One week each of the following arts will be explored in a fun yet educational way: Drama, Art, Music, and Dance.
Expressive Path partners with Montgomery County's Juvenile Probation Office to provide a place for teens to earn community service hours. We teach skills that can be used in the workplace. Expressive Path inspires these students to make posiitve change and help others.
Pamela Martin was born in Blue Bell, PA. At an early age, Pamela learned that her niche was art as she was the happiest when she was problem solving and creating something new.
Pamela’s interest in art resulted in a bachelor’s degree from Tyler School of Art. Shortly after she graduated from Tyler, she moved to the Norristown area when her son was born. While Pamela’s son was young, she received her Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Arcadia University. She began a career as a social worker and was employed for 20 years by Montgomery County where she helped many teens who were abused and neglected, had no positive outlet, and nowhere to go for help.
With the support of her family and friends, Pamela combined her love of arts, and interest in helping teens together to form Expressive Path to make a difference in her community.
