Reaching out to Kids through Art

Rewind a little bit to before the DTS started...
In June Michelle Rogers Pritzl from the States, a high school art teacher with a passion to help children in need through art, came to work with us for two weeks. She had the kids at our day center and at another christian group home here in Constanta painting self portraits of themselves as grown ups with different professions, making bracelets, creating boxes out of paper mache and more. The kids loved the different activities and we hope to work with her again next year!

Michelle is in the left corner and here we are waiting for the bus with some of the kids from Project Romania Rescue. Great kids!

Making boxes at the Day Center

At the end of the two weeks with Michelle we had an art exhibition/celebration with the kids art at our Cafe. It was a great time and we were so proud of the kids! They each got to share about what they wanted to be when they grew up- hairdressers, flight attendents, firefighters and soccer players to name a few!

No comments:

"All that is not the love of God has no meaning for me. I can truthfully say that I have no interest in anything but the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. If God wants it to, my life will be useful through my word and witness. If He wants it to, my life will bear fruit through my prayers and sacrifices. But the usefulness of my life is His concern, not mine. It would be indecent of me to worry about that."
