Students at the Willard Hope Center completed their “Love”paintings this summer.

The last step to this fun project was to add some clear gloss to the paintings to add a shine.

The paintings will be sold in a silent auction at the 2015 Hope Fest on August 16.

The funds raised from the sale of the students’ paintings will go to fund activities at the Hope Center.
