What People Are Saying

“It is healing to express my pain and love toward my daughter through art work. It is bitter-sweet moment, but it is also a great time to find joy of life again. I am grateful to find a place to honor my daughter’s life.”
“The art program provides a safe place to share with others or to JUST BE with others.”
“Your art program has changed my life because I am not alone trying to find an answer to the sadness that has occurred within me. We better express our feelings and can talk about what we have hidden within our thoughts after we see what we have created.”
“The art program puts our minds on a creative level, making objects we can take home and say ‘I feel really good about making this’. This program really helps our sorrow.”
