Painting in the MNA Foster Youth Program

We are in month two of the MNA Foster Youth Program in collaboration with Partnership For Strong Families and Ignite Refuge. The kids have moved on from working in pencil to paints. We experimented with watercolors and now have moved on to acrylic on canvas. For our final project in paint we will focus on a collaborative mural with a visit from local artist Evan Poirier.
