The Art of Elysium
February 2, 2011
Every time I volunteer with The Art of Elysium I walk out feeling inspired and grateful. Inspired by the kids who are so excited to create and grateful for the love and life that surround me. Despite the sadness and weight of many of the stories, the children are eager to learn and grow, to smile and to laugh. The perspective and insight into different worlds and experiences they provide is truly invaluable. The lovely people who run the organization are tireless in their passion that art can be a fun conduit to make a difference in so many young people's hearts.
