Art Creating Break Throughs

The Crayons Girls Draw With was graced with Atlanta's Visual Artist Tracy Murrell. Tracy being fascinated by a love for color, shape and texture coupled her inspiration with Visions of Rainy, Inc. mission ...... and art makes an impact again.

The students affirmed self with words and colors while working through feelings of their artistic expression being enough to learning everything is art work in progress. After Murrell's devoting her time, energy and skill to three classes, some students were able to communicate in depth about the textures of life they moved through and how it makes them feel. Be sure to come out in May 2011 to view the entire collection. Visions of Rainy, Inc. and The Crayons Girls Draw With participants send out infinite love and light to Tracy Murrell's contribution.
