HALO Center Makes a New Friend--And New Art!

Last week, the HALO Learning Center had an extraordinary visitor to one of our therapeutic art workshops--Miss Missouri Teen USA Christina Stratten!
February's life skill is Self-Discipline, so youth (and Miss Missouri Teen USA!) tried their hand at Tape Art--using tape on canvas can create some cool patterns for painting, but also takes time and focus, and can be fairly tedious! With unique, interesting, and complex designs, Youth got to practice how sometimes the things that take the most self-discipline can be the most rewarding and beautiful in the end. Youth and Christina also took a small break to pass around and try on her crown! HALO is so fortunate to have the support and efforts of Miss Missouri Teen USA behind them--Christina is a great role model and support to our youth. 
You can also see Christina at our 10th Annual Art Auction & 10th Birthday Party Celebration on Feb. 27th at Sporting KC! To learn more about this once-in-a-lifetime event (and purchase tickets) go to our HALO Worldwide website . Get your tickets fast before the best party of the year is sold out!
