Dealing Cards

For the 3rd year in a row, I have been invited to share balloon sculpting and magic with the children who have participated in the Kids Like Us Art Exhibit.  Kids Like Us (KLU) is a substance abuse prevention program that is offered for selected students in the grades 4-8.  It is overseen by the Frederick County Health Department (http://frederickcountymd.gov/index.aspx?NID=3267).

The young artists in the KLU art exhibit have used art as a means to help them overcome substance abuse issues in their homes.  It is truly inspirational to see the emotions, strength of character, and creative process the kids go through, via their art, to express their feelings.  In turn, I am very happy to be able to share with the kids the creative process of sculpting balloons, a process that bring smiles to many of their faces.
