Drifting Heart is a painting that illustrates my heart breaking off from my family and drifting away. In this painting I used the Northern Lights, which have beautiful colors that symbolize my passed away ancestors looking down on me. The icebergs in my painting represent how my family and I broke off and how I am drifting off away as a broken heart. Also, the water (ocean) is very cold and symbolizes that “it’s a cold world”. Painting an album cover helped me to realize that I’m not a shadow and people care about me. It has given me the opportunity to show the world what I’ve been through. Painting an album cover made me feel very special and important. It impacted the way I always wanted to be treated and showed me that art really heals!
Our goal on this international giving day is to raise $25,000 for our resilience-building art activities. Will you help us reach our goal? Your support allows us to continue providing children in our community the opportunity to express themselves artistically and learn coping skills.
We are also excited to announce that we have received an incredibly generous dollar-for-dollar match up to $15,000! With this generous match, and when we achieve our goal, we will have made $40,000. Make your gift early, and have that amount doubled, through this match!
