Kids & Art

Kids & Art is an organization that supports and encourages kids with cancer and their families to create works of art with professional artists. Then some of the art is auctioned off to raise money for the leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I had the opportunity recently to participate in an art workshop where I taught kids my passion, making earrings. We made gorgeous and striking earrings made of recycled aluminum beer bottle caps. Some of the bottle caps were even decorated with small glass beads and glitter. Many kids that worked at our station wanted to create masterpieces for their moms to wear which showed how much love they have even with all the hardships they have gone through. It was amazing to bond with them over a passion for art. As it was also my first teaching experience, I think it went as a success. I had lots of fun and I am proud to be a part of such an amazing event.

Rajee, thank you for generously donating your earrings for our June 1, 2014 Artists Exhibition. Everyone who bought the earrings loved them and when they found out that they were created by a middle schooler, they were really impressed.
