At the end of each school year, the students have an art show...to display their journals for all to see. What fun that must be for them...almost as much fun as playing in their journals. Here is a link to this year's shows...so much talent revealed because of Melody's efforts & generous contributions from people like you.
I'll be coming back to you again...reminding you of Melody's supply drive for next year's students. With the success of her program, the principals have asked if she could teach more kids...so she will need more supplies. She's having her art supply drive in August & September...but she happily accepts donations all year long. I have a large flat rate box going for her right now...as I clean through my studio, it's easy to add in things I know I don't need any longer...and when it's full, I'll send it out to the Left Coast. I keep thinking it's really a shame we don't still live out there...for many reasons...but I could just have Mel come over to visit & drive off with her car full of fun stuff. But I still do what I can...I'm not good around kids, but I'm good at contributing supplies so they can see the fun & life altering benefits of ART.
Thanks for all you do, Melody...and keep up the good work. Love ya!
