When I first saw the painted gift boxes by the tree in the jardin, I didn't realize they had been painted by local teens who are graffiti artists!
Someone, I know not who, had the brilliance to harness all that talent at using spray cans to create something that everyone can enjoy.
But, the article I read said that is what they used. Their normal materials.
Harnessing young people to better their community, to me is a good thing.
I saw a girl taking a photo of a prideful teenage boy near his creation.
It made me smile internally to know that this kid can go on to greater things.
The boxes really add color and fun to the Christmas tree.
