Russell Bryner, Director of Light of Life Rescue Mission Men’s Program, said:
"A few guys have said that they had no idea they were creative or had any artistic talent and that led to great discussions of how they have gifts that are yet to be discovered and that trying new things can really open a lot of doors. Even J that seems like he isn't into it has opened up in his small group about how he has really enjoyed it despite his lack of confidence in that area. So there have been plenty of positive comments made by the men.
They had so many positive experiences and talked about it so much. A few of the men found it so relaxing and therapeutic that they have begun drawing and using colored pencils in their free time. Seeing how much they’ve been benefiting from it, I’m looking into purchasing some basic art supplies for the prayer room in the dorm area so the men can go in to meditate and relax while using art as a way to release.”
