Painting It Forward
One Buddha at a Time
Brushing a little Kindness
By taking one of our workshops or painting sessions, you are helping to spread a little kindness by Painting it Forward. Brushing Kindness partners with woman support groups and people whom are staying in the homeless shelters in The Bay Area by offering painting sessions.
When you're lacking the basics of food and shelter, art might not seem like a priority, but creativity humanizes all people, and people who have been marginalized need safe, supportive spaces to feel valued and validated. Art is healing and helps to mend broken hearts. Below are a few of our participant paintings.
If you would like to "Paint it Forward"
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.
