Happy Independence Day!!

Independence is  a wonderful thing–whether celebrating America’s birthday or just the idea of acting independently, we can relate. Here is a re-post of some of the American Flag art pieces we have made this summer and the process of creating them. Nothing like giving a kid a syringe full of acrylic paint to let them know you trust them!

What a view!

We are looking forward to Abstractions, by Kari Kant, this Thursday, June 6 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. on the Rooftop Terrace of the Newseum Residences.

Kari is a local artist who has adopted Tracy’s Kids as a charitable partner for her show. Each of our local Tracy’s Kids locations created a beautiful peice of American Flag themed art to display, along with Ms. Kant’s abstract paintings and American Flag themed work.

    I got to visit Kari and deliver the art on Saturday, and I was bowled over by the view of Washington. Participants in Tracy’s Kids and our local friends are invited to attend–but please let us know if you can make it. Meanwhile, please enjoy this sneak preview of the view from the building and the flags from Tracy’s Kids!
