We got a chance to show off the Krause Children’s Center’s new school expansion at an Open House and Dedication held at the Center in Katy last November. The residents who earned the privilege of being “student ambassadors” gave guests tours and demonstrations in their classrooms.
An art gallery showcased student work and many guests were especially drawn to one student’s artwork. When this particular resident – we’ll call him Justin – first came to Krause he was a bit shy and initially kept very much to himself. And then he discovered ART, an entirely new talent. He’d never picked up a paint brush before and now you can’t get him to put one down. His gift is a natural one, and his delight and confidence from this new passion is a wonder to see. Once he found his new identity as an artist, he began gaining respect and admiration from his peers. He’s become a leader, helping others with their art projects, and his healing process has progressed significantly in a short time. Two of Justin’s paintings are pictured above and below. We are so proud of him!
