Healing and Outreach Through the Arts

My name is Lynn McColl, and I am offering a safe, joyful and nurturing place where children and adults come to create art or improve their writing skills-- especially those who would find it difficult otherwise to afford lessons and tutoring.   I have taught English and Art for 32 years in various schools, and now, in semi-retirement, I have the opportunity to teach from the peace of my home.  I created a learning center on the top floor of my studio.  I purchased art supplies, tables and chairs.  I disinfected, painted, cleaned and polished.  I have space to safely serve 6 students at a time.  At first I thought of my Rocket Tree Studio as a business where I can use my skills and experience to earn money, as I do need to continue to earn to support myself and my family.  However,  my heart is moved to do more.  A recent note from a beloved former student, in conjunction with a wonderful suggestion from a dear childhood friend, inspired me to launch a Go Fund Me to provide a positive, creative learning opportunity for those in need.

Especially in these sometimes dark, unsure times, I offer a place where light and love can shine through.   It would be my honor to use your donations to offer scholarships to children & adults in my community who need the comfort, inspiration and uplift the arts provide.   Thank you, thank you for helping me to give the joy of creating to others.  With your contribution, you will receive an art card or writing sample from the student you help, in gratitude for your kindness and support.
