On Saturday, January 24th Academy of Art sponsored a Valentine's Card Swap at the Youth for Parker's pool party. These kids not only partied in the pool at the Parker Rec Center but they also partied for art! Academy of Art has begun a Valentines Card Swap (Sharin' the Love of Art) for inner city youths and underprivileged children. This year our card swap is for inner city children at a battered women's shelter in Phoenix, Arizona. These children will receive a beautiful hand-made card and candy made by our very own Parker kids. A special thanks to Annika and Diersen who helped the Youth for Parker students! Thanks for supporting the arts and sharing the love with those who need it most!
