Big Brothers Big Sisters families were taken on a tour of the museum where they were treated to world class galleries including; The View Out of His Window by Jeffrey C. Becton and Object/ Shadow by Larry Kagan. After the tour, parents and children created paintings that represented their own uniqueness. The Vero Beach Museum of Art provided an outstanding instructor, Christine Thomas, who worked diligently with adults and children to make sure everyone took home a beautiful work of art. After painting, families enjoyed a great lunch provided by Jimmy John’s of Vero Beach. Families capped off a great day by taking a group picture in the Vero Beach Museum of Art’s atrium. Families all took home art kits including; paint sets, paint brushes, colored pencils, and chalk.

On Saturday, December 10th, Big Brothers Big Sisters partnered with Riverside Theatre to bring our families a special holiday event. Big Brothers Big Sisters families were treated to a performance of the play Elf Jr. After the festive and fun performance at the Riverside Children’s Theatre, families enjoyed a tasty dinner. The children then tried out Florida style ice skating, while a bluegrass band played Christmas songs. Riverside Theatre was so gracious, as they provided some holiday cheer by sending home poinsettias with all Big Brothers Big Sisters families. All children went home with a copy of The Littlest Elf book and parents also received a special Christmas gift.
