A Healthy Lifestyle includes the Arts! 
Special project at Mayde Creek High School

What's on your Table?
Hopefully healthy food! Mayde Creek High School PTA President Liz O'Donnell and ARTreach Graffiti Artist Mark Deleon were on campus to promote Healthy Lifestyles and the Arts this month. Mark painted his rendition of a healthy life on the top of a reclaimed kitchen table. Students "fed" him some healthy ideas. DeLeon's art on the table included hiking and wind surfing for exercise and a reminder to eat fruits and vegetables and get plenty of rest. Students ate it up! This unusual work of art will be on display at the V Gallery at Villagio Town Center in May.  

Seniors and Volunteers at Mamie George Community Center are getting ready for their big art sale this month!  "Espresso Yourself! At Mamie George Community Center promises a free cup of coffee and a homemade cookie along with your opportunity to buy handmade gifts, ceramic coffee cups and jewelry made by the seniors and ARTreach Volunteers to help raise money for Mamie George Community Center located at 1111 Collins Road in Richmond. This event is every 2nd Thursday 10am-1:00 PM
