Fingerpainting sunny skies


Boys & Girls Club creates art, helps community during Summer Program

Youth Development Professional Breanna Dothage helps Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri member Keagen Fredrickson create clouds on his blue sky background Monday morning at Parkview Elementary as part of the Summer Program. Dothage said the members were creating blue skies and orange sunsets with clouds and they were about to add yellow handprints for the sun along with the words “You are my sunshine.” The members were then going to give the paintings to parents and grandparents.
