Very Special Arts Showcases Hope U Student Art

In April we were proud to participate in the Very Special Arts Festival in Orange County California at the Westfield Main Place. Hope University Students performed for the crowd along with many other talented persons with disabilities. Several of our students' art work was chosen for the traveling show as well as one piece was used and the artist honored with a tee-shirt design for the Very Special Arts! Tanette, we are so proud of you and your wonderful 'puppy' block print.
Then in May the students were able to take a field trip to the mall to view the art on display. We also had a wonderful day window shopping and enjoying a special lunch in the food court.
Here we have Richard Groves smiling next to his art, a photo of the Hope University art display, Mikki and Howard enjoying the mall and Tom Veltman smiling after a fun lunch.
