Beauty in the park

The art class in the park was simply amazing.  I can’t truly describe what it was like to watch all of the children work with their own set of watercolor paints as they made stunning one-of-a-kind works of art.  They didn’t waste any time and took on their assignments so creatively.  The sight was just breathtaking.  Other people thought so too, as we drew quite the curious crowd!  Many, many passerbys gazed thoughtfully at all of the children’s masterpieces as if they were walking through a posh art gallery.  They made comments about how great their creations were.  They gave thumbs ups.  They smiled.

It was a remarkably special experience, one that I’m so thankful to have been a part of.  It’s a privilege to serve these children and see a glimpse into their precious hearts.  To spend time with them and to know them.  To receive their affection and call them by name.

      Nicole Renée - Art in the park was such a wonderful experience … to see strangers doting on the kids and truly admiring them for their work … they saw them for THEM. It was magical.ReplyCancel
