I like Color Me Empowered and the art we create with them. It's fun. Art lets me express myself. I like the art projects because they're fun and the teach us how to express ourselves. They are also challenging and that is awesome, because I like things that challenging. This program is fun, challenging and mind-opening!

I feel great after my class did a public art project. I feel delighted that I even had the privilege to do a public art project. I think that the project looks really good. The best project I ever did was this public art project.

When the whole thing was put together, it was amazing. The project looked like it was out of a dream. The bench looked like a success. This is the highlight of art at school. The art we created is extraordinary.

I've been on the Board of directors from the very beginning and every year, we get a little bit better at what we do and manage to serve more and more children. We're growing and making a real difference in the Dallas area! It's an exciting time to be a part of Color Me Empowered.
