Just a Note: Butterfly Note Cards

Just a Note:  Butterfly Note CardsA generous donation for the Art from the Heart program from Bill Foster provided ESCA with a unique opportunity. By creating and printing blank notecards, we were able to showcase art created by Alek Siegel, a participant in the program and at the same time honor the memory of Debora Foster, Board member of the FISA Foundation and an advocate for women, girls and people with disabilities. Alek, an individual on the autism spectrum, enjoys drawing, painting and entertaining others with his outstanding movie trivia knowledge and on the piano. He has been working through ESCA to gain work experiences, make social connections and to build self-advocacy skills.
The newly printed colorful Butterfly Note Cards are now available for purchase in packets of 10 for $10 at the ESCA office and our other Art from the Heart locations.
