Homeless foster children treated to day of art

- They say art is in the eye of the beholder, but today at the Phoenix Art Museum, when 150 homeless and foster children got the experience of a lifetime, everyone agreed it was beautiful.

"It gives me a time to really express myself... to speak to young people," Keke said.

Keke has been coming to "Free Art" for five years now, first as a wide-eyed newcomer and now as a helping hand. She says the program has absolutely changed her perspective on life.

Gordy, also a "Free Art" alumni, says life growing up was far from a pretty picture.

"We moved into a homeless shelter because that we were stable at because a few years before we lived under a bridge," he said.

Through theater, dance, music, and crafting, many campers say they found hope, confidence, and most importantly friends.

"Having friends that I know care about me," Gordy said.
