What if you could have a do-over, a clean slate free of emotional burdens, free of that sense of brokenness? What would that sort of freedom feel like? Can you imagine?
No matter what troubles there may have been in your past, together we will set off on a journey beyond your wildest dreams. We will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings to talk, to listen, to create, to explore. Get ready for a creative, enlightening, and enjoyable adventure. See you there.
The Artist Inside You
Ages 18 - 22
Wednesdays, 6:00pm - 8:00pm
July 11th - August 1st
In this series we will explore the arts as pathways for self-expression, self-exploration, and cultivating self-respect. The arts - visual, sound, movement, writing - ask us to explore and express our inner world, and can be richly meditative experiences as well as enjoyable and satisfying activities. We will also discuss some tools for engaging with our creations to understand what personal meaning they may hold for us.
No special skill, talent, or experience is necessary. Come and play, and find the art
Haley Rae Martin was a bit of a free spirit in the way she looked at life. She was a sensitive, caring, creative and special young woman who enjoyed life and all who came in contact with her. She had a great sense of humor and looked for the good in everyone and everything.
Ever since she was twelve years old, she loved to race around the lake in her Boston Whaler and feel the breeze in her face. She liked to ski and board when she was younger and was a true terror on a four-wheeler. She expressed herself in many creative ways and was most happy when she was doing the things she enjoyed, including beading, bracelet making, drawing, graffiti and photography. She had a unique way of looking at things and many of her pictures had a special freshness despite the fact that she had no formal training … something that she was looking forward to getting at some point in the future.
Haley touched many people in her short life, more than we ever knew. Her family and friends adored her and we all learned so much from her … there is a little piece of her now in all of us and our lives will be better because of that. She will be sorely missed.
It is in Haley Rae’s memory that this scholarship fund was established with the hopes that it will help give at least a few young people the training that she was looking forward to getting before her life was cut so short.
