They create and give. Visual artists from the CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts used their art to create warmth for new born babies. The class is called Creativity in the Community and it is taught by artist instructor Nancy Doherty who was looking for a way to have the kids give back to the community while working together learning a new skill. The project was to create no-sew blankets for new mothers. The nine fleece blankets were donated to the mothers at St. Francis Hospital. With each blanket, there was also a handmade card created by the students. Doherty says that the kids enjoyed themselves very much and she looks forward to doing the project again sometime.
