#MyJCCStory: Meet Kaylee
For some art is a hobby, for Kaylee painting provides a sense of pride and accomplishment & allowing her to feel as though she can do anything. It is also the main reason she continues to come to the Schwartz/Reisman Centre (SRC).
Kaylee is a resident of Reena, and she walks to the SRC to participate in an art class every Thursday. Painting is a way for Kaylee to express herself and the SRC community can always spot one of Kaylee’s pieces.
“I have lots of hearts in my art. That is who I am…it is what I do for my signature and people know my signature.”
Beyond support in her artistic endeavours, Kaylee loves her weekly visits to the SRC as it provides her with a sense of community, interacting with fellow members and staff and picking up new techniques to incorporate into her painting. It is also where she came up with her signature heart – a symbol that truly encompasses her spirit.
Kaylee’s JCC Story is about empowerment through art and the heartfelt creations developed each Thursday.
