Valentine Cheer 2014!
Valentine Cheer 2014!
Kudos to the creative, enthusiastic and all ’round wonderful Trinity Volunteers from the Arts of Life Chicago studio who joined our long-term Trinity Volunteers in the fun of Valentine Cheer 2014. Their beautiful paintings added a new touch to our Valentine decorations for the five Chicago and Northwest Indiana area Ronald McDonald Houses! They also served as classroom volunteers to lead the Valentine art project among students in the Gary Elementary School special education classroom. Arts of Life participants were absolutely wonderful role models for the young students who were delighted with the opportunity of creating decorations for our Valentine Cheer project working side by side with real artists. Please visit artsoflife.org to learn more about this fantastic organization that added so much beauty and good cheer to our Valentine Cheer 2014 project.
