Artist Tim Yanke Returns to OLHSA Head Start for Third Painting Session

 In Artists & Special Collections, Park West CARES, Philanthropy, Tim Yanke

Contemporary artist Tim Yanke returned to Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) today to continue a series of seasonal paintings with Head Start preschoolers. These children of low‐income families were emerged into a world of discovery and creativity for the third time this year as Yanke worked with them to paint a summer‐themed piece. Art supplies were donated by Park West Gallery.tim yanke, oakland livingston human service agency, park west gallery

Throughout 2012, Yanke has graciously donated his time to enriching the lives of OLHSA Head Start preschoolers, aged three to five years, through art. Already this year he has helped the children paint a winter-themed piece in January and a spring themed piece in May. With a fall piece to come later this season, the collection will be complete.

The pieces, finished with Yanke’s vibrant and skilled hand, will be auctioned off at a fundraiser for OLHSA, to be held at Park West Gallery.
