Virtual Art Class with Award-Winning Visual Artist

Join us on Thursday, May 21st at 3 PM EST for a virtual art class with Ronald Draper, Children’s Rights Young Professional Leadership Council Member, and Award-Winning Visual Artist.   Reciprocity & Generosity Through Art: A virtual art class for all experience levels to offer hope to those who need it most.   The concept: Give hope, take hope.   Ronald will discuss his experience with the foster care system and what brought him to Children’s Rights while gently guiding us through an art class to create messages of hope.   Give hope as you can, take hope as needed. Create and gift art, poems, notes, whatever you have in your heart to give into the “Hope Bin.” As long as it’s in digital image form, we can take it and redistribute your creation. Register on Zoom
