Paint My Piece
Join us December 7, 2022 at 6:00pm for a virtual painting experience! From the comfort of your home, you’ll be given instruction as you recreate a work of art from the Hope & Justice Art Collection. Your instructor will be the youth alumni who originally created the piece of art.
Victoria, a senior from Claremont High School, painted Growing Flower Tree in response to our monthly prompt Going Back to School: The good, the Bad, and the unexpected. About her piece, Victoria said “When a plant is well nurtured, it starts to grow. Something that helped me bring back hope for the future was speaking affirmative words and phrases before leaving home and before starting anything new. As a result of working on this project, I’ve been able to help understand, communicate, and grow towards some distant family members.”
