SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Better Life Children's Services has partnered with the Crocker Art Museum to showcase the art of Sacramento children.
Students ranging from elementary school through high school created art that expressed their vision of what it looks like to be a part of a loving family. They used artistic mediums, from acrylic paint to crayons and paper cutouts, to show what the concept of family means to them.
Better Life Children's Services, a Sacramento adoption and foster care agency, hopes the exposure from the Crocker Museum exhibit will bring awareness to the 60,000 youth in California's child welfare system, and inspire prospective parents to invite a deserving child into their home.

Admission to The Crocker Museum is $12 for adults and $6 for youth aged 6 - 17. The Better Life exhibit runs through Sunday, February 24.
They made it one grain of sand at a time and then swept it all up. Tibetan monks recently were in Cameron Park to create a mandala--a very detailed work of art that took 12 days to create. At the end, they blessed it, swept it up, and gave away the sand to onlookers. John Bartell visited with the monks as they built their incredible creation.
