Greenwood Child Paints With Nationally Recognized Artist
A Greenwood child with a recently got a chance to paint with a nationally renowned artist.
According to the Indy Star, Walter Knabe, who has art hanging in the White House, the Conrad, and Disney World, recently hosted four children with life-threatening illnesses at his Indianapolis studio as part of the Indiana Children’s Wish Fund. His goal, according to the report, is to spread positive energy to the children and the world.
Cooper Davis, 12, of Greenwood, was one of the children who spent time splashing paint on canvas and eating cookies, according to the report.
As they began painting, Knabe reminded his young students that “staying in the lines” is not what painting is about, according to the report. “I want you to paint any way you want. Have fun doing it. I think we’ll do some spectacular stuff,” he said, according to the report.
Before the afternoon was over, Davis and the others would put their creative touches on two paintings, according to the report — one to keep, and one to be sold at auction during a gala on Oct. 8 for the Wish Fund.
