Haiku: For the Love of Art

Color, shape, writing –
nurtures their hearts, minds, spirits.
Love lending a hand…

Today’s haiku refers to the art journaling classes I volunteer-teach to at-risk public school students.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be teaching six classrooms of at-risk 4th graders this school year – two in Ontario today, and four in Santa Ana over the next two weeks.  My heart is very happy that approximately 200 children will participate in my little program this year.  That’s a big jump from the 30 per year that I started with, and is even a big jump from last year’s 115!  Woo hoo!

Huge thanks to all who donated to my program for this school year – and for any other school year, for that matter!  I appreciate you helping me to bring some creative goodness to children who need it.  I’m thankful for the support you’re giving my program and my students.  I’ll be sure to post a write-up and some photos from my time in the six different classrooms after I’ve completed my initial visits to the schools and classrooms.

With thanks and a happy heart,
Melody
