Laying Symbols of Hope

Step two of a four-step art reflection for immigrants inside a detention center includes layering stencils which symbolize hope for oneself and one's children. I chose a city skyline with a church to signify a safe city to raise a family where the church is at the center of community life. 

The butterflies signify freedom and the flowers new life. Blue and purple are the favorite colors for myself and my son and the yellow is for a bright and happy life with sunshine. The woman's face is content to look upon the scene unfolding of her happy life. She is content.
