My name is Rachel McMullan, I started HomeFront on September 31 2012. I have always loved painting and drawing but never been very good at it. I use to attend Triangle Art classes when I was younger but it was just for fun. As an adult I enjoy painting because it is a way to express myself and with the practice I’m actually getting pretty good. With all the hardships going on in everyday life it’s nice to have a place to go and be able to zone out and do something you can be proud of and always cherish. Art is a great way to express yourself and also helps build confidence in your own abilities which is important for HomeFront participants. When I think of ArtSpace and what goes on here some words that come to my mind are beauty, passion, individuality, and self confidence.
