Art and Literacy Day in DCS

Art of Hope and Duplin County Schools came together to create an Art and literacy day for all the Elementary Schools. Hope Smith went into the schools and while a book was being read she painted live for the students. Each school ended up with 2 original paintings that the students got to be apart of. Hope says "this was an awesome and rewarding experience! The students where wide eyed and so excited to be apart of the creative process of a live painting while incorporating reading." Visit the "Shop Art of Hope" under "Literacy Paintings" to view all the paintings that where created. Prints are available for each one!

Easter Sunrise Service

Easter 2012, Hope attended a sunrise service in Whiteville, NC. The town came together for the service and Hope did a live painting on stage during the service. Then they went to the streets and wrote the New Testament on the streets. It was an amazing time. God says that His word does not return to Him void but accomplishes what it is sent out to do. I believe this day was seeds planted for a great harvest!
