The Art Junction recently began a painting program with the kids at the Willard Hope Center on Tuesday afternoons.

Students are exploring acrylic painting to express themselves and to create paintings to be used in the Hope Center’s upcoming auction at the end of May.

During the first painting session students explored mixing and blending related colors as they applied the first layer of color to the canvas.

Everyone enjoyed the process of mixing and applying color.  It seems to be a very therapeutic process to the kids.

Vincent van Gogh stated, “The only time I feel alive is when I’m painting.”  I think the students at the Hope Center felt alive during our first session.
