ida galash's comments:
I passionately believe in the power of art to make a diffference in the lives of young people. I am currently working on my 19th mural at Fernwood School in North East Portland. I am not financially compensated but the comments and interest I recieve are priceless and stand as testimony to the powerful effect art can have. Happily, this year the PTA has offered to help me with the cost of my materials, but even if they hadn't I would keep on painting. I feel my gift has made the school a nore welcoming,uplifting place in which to learn. Art makes a difference. It is worthy of support.
