Senior Isari Kodithuwakku, president of the National Art Honor Society, paints a colorful landscape on a canvas. The artwork is part of a Youth Arts for Healing project, a Montgomery County based nonprofit dedicated to bringing youth artwork into healthcare environments. “It’s a big project that we do that basically has a bunch of themes and different size canvases based on the themes, and we’re donating these canvases to hospitals in the local area,” Kodithuwakku said. The paintings will be permanently displayed, and student artists will receive honor society credits for their contributions. “At first I didn’t really think of it as something super impactful, but this year… even though I have all the credits done, I still wanted to do it. I can imagine being in a hospital and not having anything interesting to look at every day.”
