My Purpose is becoming clearer! Today I met with Free Arts and Maryvale which is wonderful residential treatment center for girls 6-18. These girls come from a variety of abusive and neglect filled backgrounds. Free Arts has asked me to head a program for a selected group of young women that will focus on art journaling - each week exploring a new type of medium and culminating in a mixed media canvas for a gallery show at a reputable gallery in Santa Monica where the girls work will be displayed at an opening vip reception and to the public on Sept. 15th. The project will span June through August with workshops every week. These are young women ages 12 to 18 who are in residence from 1 to 4yrs at Maryvale who will be chosen to enter the program.
So here is my Favor ...
My wish list for the girls ...
We need the following new or gently used items
(all items are tax deductible donations through Free Arts)
caran d'ache neo color II crayons
water color paint
punches any shape
(please, only items that you would use yourself not things you would throw away :) )
If you can donate any thing from the list please let me know -
