Resident and artist Dave Brooker’s cheeks and hair bore rainbow splashes of paint. His hands, white smock, and shoes also carried a slash of red, smudge of blue, and random dabs in many colors as he led children through an afternoon of art in his Newtown studio late last week.
With several Resiliency Center of Newtown (RCN) members on hand, a group of children visited on March 6 and squinted behind goggles as they grabbed up paint brushes and threw paint at the walls, overhead, and in wet swaths across the floor.
