My name is Amy
and I am the Art Instructor
of the Holy Family Institute After School Art Program. My students are
children, ages 8-18, who have been removed from their homes and live on Holy
Family's campus. The students are very open and expressive with their work
which is why I am inviting all who view your website to visit
VOICES...Visual Testimonies From the Hearts of Children...
at The Father Ryan Arts Center, 420
Rocks, pa. 15136.
I have attached the poster for the show; The opening reception was this past
Saturday, May 9th. It was wonderful to watch the participating young artists
walking through the gallery proudly showing their work to their staff,
volunteers, and visitors from the public. Some were fortunate enough to have
their family members attend.
The goal of this show is to provide a rich self esteem for these fine young
artists, age 8-18 as this is the very first time they are displaying their
artwork to the public. Also, to raise a public awareness of the
importance that art has in everyone's life; not only in the artists themselves,
but also in those who view such unique visual translations. Holy Family
Institute has been serving families in need for the past 109 years. I promise
you, you will not be disappointed.
Thank you for your support in the arts and for your time in reading this email.
