Heart Thru Art Aids Kids, Bonds Community

heart-thru-art.jpgKim Henry took the Self-Expression and Leadership Program in Houston this summer, and her project was “Heart Thru Art,” a fundraiser that both promoted art to the local community and benefited children in need. The Fort Bend and Harris County community came together over the weekend of September 27 and 28 to see art in a wide variety of mediums – watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic, sculpture, collage, fiber art, metalwork, photography and ceramics.

The event took place at the Sugar Land Town center through tickets available to the public and also featured food and beverages, art demonstrations and a silent auction.

Money raised from the sales went to the artists except for 20% that went to Heart Thru Art, which funded Artbridge, a worthy charity that develops art programs for homeless children and which is on pace to assist 3,000 Houston-area children in 2008.
