Last Friday, we were visited by the cool kids from Prairiewood Transition Center! They were such a fun, joyful group of artists! Each student painted a wooden hand cutout that we provided for them. We discussed briefly how important our hands are, and the many things we can do with them, such as eating, painting, waving at our friends, and picking things up.
Here are some pics of the artists at work.....almost always with a smile on their face....simply delightful!
Sarah was really fast, so I had to provide some paper and markers to keep her busy while everyone else finished up! :)
When asked whether they preferred listening to music while they painted, they wholeheartedly agreed that music is a MUST when creating...so we rocked out to a little Rolling Stones and Tom Petty. Does it get any better than that? I think not.
They were really happy to be here with us in the studio....and we were happy to see them.
I have to give their creations a nice shiny coat to protect them, and the hands will be going up on display in the store by this weekend. If there's one that tickles your fancy, come in and purchase it! All "Art Rocks" purchases made allow us to reinvest in more projects for these lovely souls to work on! Next meeting is mid April, and I can't wait!
