In 2011, Isabel Rodriguez and Devon MacDonald, with the help of Ryley Murray and Ernie Morrison, started Scribble Me Silly – Art for Kids.
Scribble Me Silly – Art for Kids was started with the aim of empowering kids living in family shelters by making art. We bring professional artists to the shelters in the role of artistic mentors. Our art programs expose the kids to multiple art forms. In the past, we have featured workshops on dance, painting, sculpting, songwriting, and drumming circles. Our goal is to provide a space for children to be children, whatever their circumstances are.
“Having had a parent who experienced domestic violence, I am certain that exposing these children to the very fun-filled, energetic, and positive atmosphere created by the mentors and art program itself, will serve to promote new talents, develop self-esteem, and transform any frustration into creative outlet expressions, that, in turn, brings forth hope, confidence, and fun!”
