Art for The Retreat, Domestic Violence Shelter

I have had the honor of working directly with mothers and children at The Retreat, a domestic violence shelter. The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center has sponsored numerous drip painting workshops for families at the Retreat. As I painted with babies, children, teens, and mothers, I felt moved to offer more to the women and their children. An idea came to me -- I visited the Hauppauge Library to work with teens as part of their community outreach - together we constructed soft sculpture "donut" pillows to be given to children at the Retreat. I followed up with a visit the the Retreat and worked with moms and children to decorate the pillows. Imagine That! will continue to donate art workshops to The Retreat.
