The turn out at our 2nd HAP event was better than the first week’s as we had 25+ homeless participants, 3 of them being veterans, as well as ~20 other participants. Several people from last week returned to paint again. Jennifer and Guiellmo (from week one) were excited to learn they were in the Redding Record Searchlight article from week 1.
Week two brought about many interesting people including Danny Brown, a local homeless veteran, Gary who enjoys coloring in comic book characters, and Kathy who was very sweet and created a painting of downtown Redding which reminded us of the perspective used by artist Grandma Moses.
