Helping Fellow Texans
As many of you know Texas is where I was born & raised. It’s the place that always welcomes me back with open arms & warm smiles. Most of my family lives there, including my wonderful sister Monica. 💜 Monica and I have decided to join forces (all these miles away) to raise money to put together art bags for the displaced children who will call Killeen Texas home over the next few weeks, months… —————– Art, as you may also know, is HUGE for me- it’s my medicine. I believe it can be everyone’s medicine. I also feel as a mother that art is one of the best ways for children to express themselves through imagination. 🖍📖 Remember picking up a crayon and feeling like you could make anything? That feeling of creating your own character or story? It was great, right? Imagine being away from home no crayons, books, or paper or a place to let out your imagination. 😞 Please say you’ll help us give these babies some creative goodies. We’re partnering with The Salvation Army of Killeen to distribute the bags to children in shelters, but we need your help. Please click the link in my profile for our @youcaring page. Thank you in advance! 😘 #LinkInBio Please share!!!
I’ve also put together a small list of other ways you can help out Texans:
• Donate to @globalgiving‘s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund • Donate to @TexasDiaperBank, I’m quite sure they’re assisting.
• @FeedingTexas is helping local food banks.
• @salvationarmyus text STORM to 51555
• Pets need help too! @animaldefenseleague is taking donations and are looking fosters.
A little morning art therapy… and of course coffee. ☕️🖍💕 ________________________________ post shared by Dean 👌🏽👩🏻💻👩🏻🎨 (@mrs_aok) on
I’ve been meaning to share the after of the little blue canvas I shared a few posts back. Here it is. 💙🔵🔹👩🏻🎨 Picture 2) Is the before of the desert painting. I was inspired by a class on perspective I taught my son’s 3rd grade class. Like Klee, the imagination of those little artists were truly my inspiration for this one. 🌵🌞👩🏻🎨 Picture 3) Ummm… this is my first try at painting my homeboy Poe. He kind of looks like Poe mixed with a little Professor Lockhart. I’m going to give this one another go. 🙂 🖤
