Homewood’s Healing Angels

How one teacher honored her students’ beauty, divinity, dreams and sparks through art. Laurie Marshall painted 47 fifth grade art students of the Helen S. Faison Arts Academy of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The students gave their writing to the book. The Arts Academy is located in a community called “Homewood” which has a long, rich history of great challenges and great accomplishments.

How might you honor and collaborate with your students?

This project has laid the groundwork for a long-term relationship, celebrated in the Homewood Healing Angels reunion.
