Linda Vista Canvas Their Feelings
Linda Vista Resource Center had a wonder event. The youngest residents were invited to put their feelings on canvas. Some used words and some used pictures. There were hearts for love, flowers for happiness, and a lion for bravery.
Selecting many colors the children were encouraged to think about what the felt, what they wanted to feel, and what were the best feelings to have. Children were asked also what it felt like to help others and added that to their canvasses. Teen volunteers helped the youngest children with their pictures while others grabbed paint brushes and dipped into the colors and got down to work.
While their canvasses dried, the kids pitched in to clean up and spoke further about how they helped others and what projects they would like to see the Center tackle to help other people come to the Center. The colorful canvasses were taken home for gifts for parents and families.
