I was so taken aback by the level of talent displayed by the kids that I felt it was my responsibility to photograph each piece of art in order to document their beautiful work. I’m glad to know that those images now live in the HOLA archives. My son is fortunate that his school district still offers art, music, and sports. Until I began volunteering with HOLA I took this for granted. To come to HOLA and see new worlds opened to young minds hungry for the arts really made an impact on me. I realized without the wonderful volunteers of HOLA, none of the beautiful art on the walls nor the music that was wafting through the hallways would have ever existed. It’s an honor for me to dedicate volunteer hours to this organization.
