Koi

Navigant’s Shawn DeGroot served as an art teacher on the “Dream Team” in South Dakota in August for the Children’s Home Society that provides small groups of abused/neglected children an opportunity to create their own art. Eight artists work in various mediums and mentor the children by volunteering to teach classes. The opportunity gives the children a healthy, positive outlet to deal with their emotions and past trauma while they heal and attend school. In addition, Shawn created a “Koi Fish” glass art piece that was auctioned in October for $750 and 100% of the proceeds were donated to Children’s Home Society.
