This year’s event chair, Elaine Green, says “Art & Soul proudly showcases art created by the children and adults of Easterseals and local artists. You have the opportunity to own beautiful art or gift it for Christmas.” You will see artwork from the Little Rock Preschool, Children’s Rehabilitation Center and Center for Training & Wellness – where adults with disabilities can go to make friends, learn new skills and obtain a job. Some of these adults also paint through the Artistic Realization Technologies program (A.R.T.)

For the past three years, C.W. has created stunning masterpieces in A.R.T. He collaborates with a trained volunteer who follows his directives from picking the canvas size, paint tools, colors and where the volunteer places the strokes on the canvas. “I am happy when painting and look forward to my sessions,” says C.W.
