Earlier this year, Sara M. poured her heart into her grade 12 capstone project, and the result is nothing short of magical and NEEDS to be shared!!

When Sara and her family stayed at a YANA apartment in Vancouver, a piece of art on the wall illustrating the Comox Valley became a comforting presence, reminding her of the immense support of our community behind her. Inspired by this, Sara taught herself how to paint and created 4 STUNNING watercolor masterpieces capturing the beauty of the Comox Valley.

Sara turned her beautiful art into sets of prints, sold them, and donated the proceeds to YANA! 😊💖 Not stopping there, she generously donated the original paintings to YANA, ensuring they continue inspiring hope in the hearts of families going through tough times.

Sara, your kindness and creativity have left us in awe. Your art isn’t just paintings; they are symbols of resilience, community, and love. So, from the depths of our hearts, THANK YOU, Sara! Your art has a special place in our YANA family, reminding us all of the incredible power of giving and creativity.
