    It has been a pleasure to be able to be part of Art Feeds Carthage and to experience, first hand, the students excitement as they create their own masterpieces! To see the confidence and pride they show in their work is most rewarding.

    Watching the kids get excited and enjoy doing every project- I can't help to tear up at times as the kids explain the reason behind their art. I teach to help the kids but I didn't realize how much they would help me!
