Making Art, Children of St. Francis De Sales, Philadelphia
Sister Constance Marie and Jeannette Lucey talk about the role artistic expression has played in helping many of the children in St. Francis De Sales cope with very difficult circumstances.
"When they can paint something or draw something it doesn't dismiss what they've experienced, but it places something within that frame that is beautiful and calming and is real because it doesn't go away. It stays there and they have created this spot of beauty that's just theirs alone sometimes."
