Paint Love Volunteer Day at Kate’s Club

MAY.4.2014. Teens who have faced loss exploring strong emotions through color and creativity

Myself and Penny Treese volunteered our creative abilities in wax on behalf of Paint Love for the benefit of the kids at Kate’s Club today.  The theme of the day was:

“I’m fine: leave me alone or am I?”
[avoiding loneliness and isolation, supporting one another]

Our mission to encourage these kids to explore their emotions through two different projects with melting wax.

I was in charge of exploring emotions through color selection/palette using the method of melting crayons on canvas with heat gun.  Penny shared her expertise of exploring emotions through writing down feelings, burning them then creating a work of art from those charred thoughts and molten beeswax.  It was a great day, the kids were amazing and open 100% to the experience of exploring their loss through creation.   Some even discussed their loss—so moving.
