Painting from the Heart Fundraiser at Painting with a Twist
Located just two doors down from The Center, Painting with a Twist will be hosting our fundraising event on Monday February 17, 2014. 1/2 of the proceeds will go directly to Center for Learning Through Rhythm and Movement. Drop by The Center to check out Rich's art piece hanging prominently in the lobby by the front door. If he can do it, anybody can do it! He said that he was surprised by the recognizability of the painting by the time he was done, which took about 2 hours. General directions are given, and they walk you through the painting step by step. Surprise yourself and see what you can do! Acrylic paints are used, which are very forgiving. To sign up click here.

Carylee Kensler Great Presentation at Filippa's
Carylee Kensler - CLTRM spoke at Kiwanis on August 8 and the crowd was inspired learning about Brain Gym and the Center so much so that two Kiwanis members donated three scholarships for summer camp in August. This will help prepare kids for school in the fall. Thank you to Kiwanis members and we look forward to a partnership in the future.
