Kiwanis Club of Issaquah honors Every Day Hero
September 18, 2012
The Kiwanis Club of Issaquah recently presented their Every Day Hero Award to Pamela Poirier. She was nominated by the director of the Issaquah Valley Senior Center.
Poirier is the artist in residence at the senior center. For almost two years, Poirier has volunteered to teach the Friday afternoon art workshops at the center.
She donated several original paintings to the center and conducted an art show last spring, where she and her students displayed their work.
Poirier’s influence on her students’ work is evident. The students use color more vibrantly, their artistic perspectives have grown and their use of texture is much more comprehensive.
