ART              From
                    The                  Heart.
                       At The WARM Place we have experienced the healing powers of artistic
                    expression. Through directed art projects the children and teens help sort out
                    their grief and emotions and put them into something tangible. Sometimes they
                    are asked to draw or paint a memory of their loved one who died. Other times
                    they may be asked to express how they are feeling inside. The art may be
                    painted on a rock, a tile, or a mask. The end results are always special.
                       This spring the teen groups were asked at their group sessions to paint a
                    special memory or place they shared with their loved one on ceramic plates.
                    The plates were to be a gift to The WARM Place to decorate our very bare
                    new kitchen.
                       The teens were told the previous week to be thinking about what they
                    might want to create on their plates. At their next session, each teen de-
                    signed and painted their plates with great color and detail. We discovered
                    some true artists! Once the painting was complete, the plates were glazed
                    and fired. The end result is magnificent.
                       The one-of-a-kind plates have been carefully hung above the cabinets, all
                    around the kitchen. Each one is unique and beautiful. Everyone at The
                    WARM Place offers a special thank you to our teen groups for sharing their
                    time and talents with us in such a memorable way.

                                                                                 Wes Nolley, Age 17

                                          Mary Martha’s plate is in memory of
                                      her father. She placed his initials in

                                      rim of the plate. Mary Martha said,
                                      “My Dad is the sun. He is my sun. He
                                      is the one that lights up my day.”

                                                      Jared Frank, Age 13
                                      Jared designed his plate with the things
                                      his older sister loved— a rose, because
                                      that was her favorite flower— her car,
                                      that was painted with a special paint to
                                      reflect the rainbow colors in the
                                      sunlight and crowns around the border
                                      of the plate, because his sister was the
                                      princess of the family.


                                               Amanda Nail, Age 14
   Amanda and her Dad loved to sit on the beach at night, talking and
looking up at the stars. She painted her plate in memory of those special
nights together.

                                        Matt’s Mother loved flowers and the outdoors. He misses her most in
                                        the spring when all the flowers are blooming. He painted a picture of
                                        himself and his Mom taking a walk, which they loved to do together.


                                            Tia McCuin, Age15
                                      Tia’s plate is dedicated to her mother.
                                      Her plate depicts her entire family all
                                      together in a group. Tia says, “ My
                                      mother was the person who always
                                      held our family together. And we are
                                      all still together as a family even
                                      though she is not with us.”

                                           Dustin Thompson, Age 15
                                         Dustin’s plate is in memory of his
                                      father who was a registered nurse. He
                                      painted the RN initials with a stetho-
                                      scope. He painted the sun’s rays
                                      around the border because his Dad
                                      was the light of his life.
