Dec. 17, 2005 – A new exhibit in Houston, Texas is showing how children affected by Hurricane Katrina are expressing their grief.
A collection of 30 children’s pictures goes on display Saturday through January fourth at the Houston Public Library. The artwork was created by children who took shelter in the city’s Astrodome and Reliant Center after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in August. The display is also scheduled for a national tour to raise money for hurricane victims and promote art therapy.
Teacher Ashley Bryan, “It was amazing to see that a child can pull out such an optimistic thread out of such a horrific experience.” Posted 10:15pm by Chantelle Janelle
