)-- Junior League of the Palm Beaches Inc. (JLPB) and Susan Cushing celebrated artist and Honorary Chair of the JLPB’s upcoming inaugural Into the Wild Gala recently held an art clinic with children from the De George Boys and Girls Club.
Participants of the art clinic, created “Eye of the Tiger” animal masks. Cushing led children ages seven through nine to design masks depicting courage, strength and a never-give-up attitude.
Laura Wissa, the JLPB President, stated, “We couldn’t be happier to collaborate with our long time community partner, the De George Boys & Girls Club. Creating art is so invaluable to children because it allows them to process their world and to deal with sometimes uncomfortable emotions. Art helps them reach their full potential as productive and responsible citizens.”
The “Into the Wild” art exhibit will be on full display at the Into the Wild Gala that takes place on March 7, at the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society in West Palm Beach. For Gala tickets or information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
