Bellevue Hospital, 09/20/11

Jane Archer put together a wonderful night of autumn apple drawing and eating real apples that she harvested from a local farmer’s market.  She and artists, Ray AlmaJoan ChivertonJeanine HendersonEd Steckley and Karrie Witkin, asked the kids “what’s at your core, what makes you feel strong?” and then we all drew images of what makes us feel powerful, positive and fulfilled.  One boy said, “sitting in the rain” fortified him, a little girl said “learning how to draw art” made her feel strong, and another boy said, ” I’m grateful that you brought us apples, and I’m grateful that you are here.”  We are grateful to you, brave kids of Bellevue, and we are so happy you let us celebrate the arrival of fall with you!
