"LA CASA DE DON PEDRO/ spring break carnival
April 17th, 2009 Newark, NJ
This was the reason why i was teaching Ms Garcia, Ms Nancy, Ms O, and Ms Otero to face paint. We were going to need help painting all the children at this carnival. The day was a hit! With all the activities that were going on our table was the busiest. I was very proud of my ladies. They worked very hard and the two that had actually not had any actual practice did great.
Even "Batman" aka Officer Ortiz of the newark chapter of D.A.R.E. showed up and I made a big deal ,to the extreme amusement of the children, about having a crush on him. I sent 4 painted jokers out to bring him to me but only one was successful. My models giggled themselves to death as they saw him sneek up behind me to compliment my work. I don't have a lot of pics because i was so busy, but here are some sent to me by David Castillo , of " la casa".

" when life closes all doors, God opens a window!"
This is an actual door that was sent to me by Ms. Silvia Stone, the service coordinator for the East Orange, CPNJ facility, to paint in whatever way i saw fit. I chose to paint the window that God opened for me with my painting and clowning!

For this event I limited my designs to the mascott and the school colors. There were so many kids and so little time, that I had to paint two at a time some times. Still , a lot of fun!
Rafael Hernandez Elementary School Jan/Feb 2009
I try to dedicate as much time as I can to my children's education so I often donate my time for some of their programs. The "CASA DE DON PEDRO" after school program is one of them . Besides painting for their Christmas show I was allowed to throw a little bithday party for my daughter. Even Ms. Garcia joined in for the fun that day...here are some pics of both days.
