Hearts & Crafts is a project that was started by KHK Graduate Ambassador, Anabel Brown. When we asked why she was inspired to spark-a-project, she replied:
“KHK’s motto of turning passion into action was what inspired me to start Hearts and Crafts. I love creating art whenever I can, and KHK made me realize how I could take my passion and use it to benefit others. I believe art provides an essential creative outlet and should be available to everyone.”
Now, several years later we continue Anabel’s project and help foster artistic creativity by developing an arts & crafts project that all children can participate in. Usually, the idea stems from an activity that the lead ambassador really enjoys. This summer, we will be bringing Hearts & Crafts to the children who live at an affordable housing complex in Stamford. While we are there, our volunteers will engage the children in fun, hands-on activities such as coloring, making beaded necklaces, rainbow loom bracelets and working with play-doh. Our objective is to really have fun with our guests so that they valued and special.
