    01.17.2022 Zoom Event: “The Gift that I Am” Art Event presented by Anasuya Angela Isaacs

    We all have gifts that we were born with,
    gifts that we’ve brought to the world.
    This makes us a gift.

    We may know some of our gifts, and we may
    even think that we don’t even have any gifts
    at all…
    BUT WE DO.
    Discover your gifts in a playful art project
    for the whole family to do together.
    (No art experience necessary)
    You’ll get to know each other in a fun way and
    discover the gifts that you never knew you had.
    In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday
    A GIFT for you and your family.
