Center for the Arts Giving Back with ‘Stars of Hope: Painting it Forward’ Event


Since Hurricane Michael, people from across the nation have come from near and far to help the Panhandle.

But our community won’t be the only place ever to be impacted by a disaster.

That’s why the Panama City Center for the Arts is hosting an event called ‘Stars of Hope: Painting it Forward,’ to give people a chance to relax while giving back to other communities.

On Saturday, Feb. 2 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m, you can come to the Panama City Center for the Arts to paint a wooden star with positive messages.

Those stars will then be sent to other areas to be hung all around the disaster site to add bright, cheerful art and kind thoughts to the scene.

Stars of HOPEĀ® is a therapeutic arts program created after 9/11 to bring hope to people who have experienced a natural or man-made disaster. 

Everyone is encouraged to come to the Center for the Arts on Saturday, and take as much or as little time as they need to paint a star.
