Art Grow In Communities”
the gap with this Intergenerational art program. MAGIC brings children
and young adults together with senior adults in various stages of
the aging process.
“Let’s Be Friends” is a self-portrait
of Charlotte, 92 years young, and her new friends Angel and Meredith,
both in their early teens. They spent numerous hours together in class
talking about their lives and their interests. They loved their new
friendship and decided to create a painting that would share this
experience with others. “Let’s Be Friends” is about
awareness, showing the world the importance of bridging the generational
gap, and how the use of art and creativity can be
a short cut to getting there.

M.A.G.I.C. is a wonderful program and Linda Bounds is an amazing person.
I am so glad that my class could have this experience. When I look back
on the times I had at the senior center, I remember the unveiling of
the paintings and the happy look on everyone’s face. I knew that
I had helped the seniors, and that I made a difference in their life
and I felt so great. I just want to thank you for all that you have
done for me and that I hope this program goes in every school.
