New Alternatives for Children 09/27/16


Our new Director at NAC, Lisa LaBracio, led us all in making leaf creatures today!  Fresh Fall leaves, markers and googly eyes became birds, bears, manta rays, trees, dogs, monsters, and more. We loved imagining all the things a leaf could become, and as one young artist said, “leaves are free, so we can do this ALL THE TIME!”  Happy autumn, everyone!

Thanks to volunteers: Elana Amity, Todd Broder, Barbara Garrison and Franz Palomares.

Thanks also to Blick Arts for helping us give each child their own art kit so that they can continue creating on their own.

New Alternatives for Children provides health and social services to children with disabilities and chronic illnesses.  It focuses on children in foster care and adoptive homes.
