Vision Boards

Thursday, Betsy Hoehn, who is now helping coordinate activities and fundraising with Studio 222 brought materials for the kids to create their own "Vision Boards". The vision boards are to reflect goals and dreams - short-term and long-term. Betsy talked about the importance of setting goals and working to achieve them. She shared her own personal vision board and talked about how goals change over time. Some of the goals set by the kids were: new cars, traveling, becoming broadcasters, lawyers, chefs, having homes, families, great kitchens, and more.

Every day the kids of Studio 222 amaze me! They have such creativity and talent. The classes are going exceptionally well. Betsy has her class creating poetry, drama and much more. The daily laughter heard in her class shows what a great time everyone is having. Ray's class is drawing, painting and making some pieces of art that are so creative and interesting. The photography class led by Mike has been incredibly inspiring! St. Luke's is even using one of the kids photos for the cover of its May magazine Outlook! There are other pictures featured in the magazine as well. We'll post some photos soon and trust me, they will knock your socks off! I can't believe the year is almost over. These kids are so special and watching them engage in expressing themselves through paint, poetry, drama and photography makes me truly believe that art heals and inspires the soul.
